It would appear that the butterflies of Africa website needs to be corrected. Thanks Fanie for the correction. Just saw that there has been a population discovered in the Augrabies Falls National park, which is more than 500km away from the nearest known locality of this taxon in South Africa. Amazing!

Charaxes hansalii is only found in central and northern Africa.
