The Ornoep Conophytum, one of about one hundred species of the genus Conophytum, is known only from a single population, which grew in the valley of the Oernoep River near the town of Steinkopf in the South African province Northern Cape.

The habitat of the species was obviously destroyed by feldspar mining activities and by road works.
