Description:

Redlisted as Near Threatened
"A population reduction of 27% is estimated based on a reduction in range size (EOO) in the past 40 years (reseeder, generation length ± 20 years). Land transformation and climate change models predict a >50% population reduction by 2025 (Bomhard et al. 2005). Model predictions are considered extreme, but a further population reduction in the next 20 years is likely. Other threats to the species include alien plant invasion, afforestation, expanding protea and vineyard cultivation and urban expansion."
