I'm not surprised that recent collections of Sprekelia from the wild are so hard to track down: the plant has been in cultivation in Europe since at least the sixteenth century (i.e. over 400 years) and has been in the trade for at least well over a century. 

Recent collections from the wild probably end up as herbarium hay or in the hands of paranoid collectors who will their earthly possessions to their cats.
