South African distribution: West coast (NC) from the Orange River to east of the Storms River mouth (EC).

Remarks: Haploblepharus pictus   was synonymized or misidentified by most authors before Bass et al. (1975) resurrected it as a valid species. The species is most often misidentified with H. edwardsii   where the two species overlap between False Bay and Hermanus (WC). A near endemic to South Africa, the northern range of this species is just north of L̹deritz, Namibia ( Human, 2007).

Conservation status: LC (2019).
