Type
Type: South Africa, Thunberg s.n. (UPS, holo.)
Note
Haines & Lye based their inclusion of this taxon on Magogo 1454 from Marsabit area. The species is said to be very close to C. conglomeratus but differs in no leaves or only very short leaves; it occurs in Namibia, South Africa, Leshoto, Swaziland. HB: not much I can do about this unless the specimen Magogo 1454 resurfaces.

Native to:

Angola, Botswana, Cape Provinces, Free State, Kenya, KwaZulu-Natal, Lesotho, Namibia, Northern Provinces, Swaziland
