Probably a condensed version from his PhD thesis of a similar title.

goo stuff Will. I like that it is concurrent. Although most Psammobates or even any SA species are studied less than others. I find them very very fascinating. Especially that most of the Cape species are dated the oldest. I came across a nice article of a 1937 Hewitt article on SA species. His trip was in 1934-35 I believe. Much of the info seems to be relatively similar in thesis. I found it interesting that each different locality of Psammobates were considered a different species. But seems they can tolerate different environments. SA sure does display quite a variety of different environments.
