  1. ? = measurement could not be performed in this month because the gauge was broken.
  2. * = a fire occurred in early February 2009 which pronouncedly damaged the vegetation in the habitat of R. capensis.
  3. TOTAL = total rainfall for each year; a graphic comparison of yearly rainfall data available since 1945 from that meteorological station shows that the period 1999–2006 was the most dry period.
