Cape of Good Hope, South Africa.
Forms a species pair with A. afraoides, with which often considered conspecific (see below). In the past, species name commonly misspelt atra, the error originally arising probably from poorly printed text; scientific description has frequently been credited to “Linnaeus, 1766”, but pre-dated by valid 1758 description. Monotypic.
W & S South Africa from Little Namaqualand S to Cape Town, then E to Grahamstown.
