Cape of Good Hope, South Africa.
Has sometimes been considered conspecific with C. stuhlmanni, C. prigoginei and C. ludovicensis; close also to C. reichenowi. Newly described taxon skye, here included as race of C. ludovicensis (which see), was previously thought possibly close to present species or C. manoensis. Birds from N & E of range (S to SC Eastern Cape) sometimes treated as race saliens, but supposed distinction unconvincing. Monotypic.
