Although it is usually encountered as scattered plants, it is widespread and thus gives
a good coverage in the atlas data. Pr cyna is present on all the higher laying sandstone

Karbonkelberg. It is curiously absent south of Smiths Farm in the Cape of Good Hope Nature
Reserve. Interestingly, there is a herbarium record from Bergvliet, but we have no atlas
necords of this species from the sandy flats of the Peninsula.
