Kimberley, South Africa.
This might not be a valid species, since a recent study has shown that the available material in museums is in fact an amalgam of two other taxa: the syntype, a male paratype and two additional skins are inseparable from Anthus vaalensis, while a female paratype is an A. similis#R.
Little known. Occurs in austral winter in C South Africa: observed in Kimberley area (E Northern Cape-W Free State), and recorded also from near Colesberg (S of R Orange) and Beaufort West (E Western Cape). Probably breeds farther N, on Barotse floodplains in Zimbabwe.
