Cape of Good Hope, South Africa.
Probably most closely related to C. thoracicus and C. sanctaehelenae; often considered conspecific with latter. Various races have been proposed: allenbyi (from Egypt), isabellinus (Egypt to DRCongo, Kenya) and tephricolor (SW Africa and N Botswana), but variation is slight and mainly clinal, with overlap of characters, and reported sample sizes are small. Monotypic.
