Hadogenes minor is the only species in the Western Cape occurring in the Cedarberg. This scorpions future is secure as most of the greater Cedarberg will soon be protected in a very extensive conservancy streatching from the west coast to the Tankwa National Park in the east and northwards to Oorlogskloof Nature Reserve at Nieuwoudtville in the Northern Cape.
