Endemic to South Africa. C. m. labiatus is found in discrete forest areas with no dispersal between subpopulations. It is listed as Vulnerable on the basis of a past decline exceeding 30% over the past 27 years, mainly as suitable habitat has been lost throughout the subspecies' highly fragmented range due to past logging practices, and current forestry plantations.
