  • The near-endemic Angola cave-chat (Xenocopsychus ansorgei) is common but extremely localized, being limited to a few rocky hills and cliffs and surrounding forest habitat in four isolated areas, two of which fall into the ecoregion: eastern Namibe and Huíla in the southern outlier of the ecoregion, and on the inselberg of Mt.
