Date

Description

Geissorhiza namaquamontana


Newly described (SA J Botany 2017, 111; pp 299-301), based on this specimen; fairly common from 700-860m on steep s and se facing rocky slopes; in seasonally damp soils and moss pads, to 25cm; only known from 3 collections - here, nr Leliefentein and on the Rooiberg, so yet another Kamiesberg endemic (about 60 now, with another 70 being near endemics!). Should probably be Redlisted as Rare.

From the paper: "This has led us to revise the concept of G. namaquensis, which we now restrict to taller plants up to 300 mm tall, with comparatively larger flowers with tepals
14–18 × ±4 mm and anthers 4.5–5.5 mm long. The shorter plants from the Kamiesberg and Grootberg, 80–160(–250)mm tall, with smaller flowers with tepals 8–10 ×±2mm and anthers 2–3mm long, are described as the new species Geissorhiza namaquamontana."

The botanical treasure trove of the Chimanimani Mts never seizes to amaze. In 2006 my wife and I first found this slender Ceropegia twining through the grass. The only clue to its identity we discovered was the presence of 2 specimens at the herbarium in Harare tucked away in an unnamed folder. When we found it again in 2014 and collected a specimen for the Kew herbarium it finally got some of the attention it deserved but it took until the release 2 years ago year of the Flora Zambesiaca volume covering the Ascleps of the region before it was officially described as Ceropegia chimanimaniensis, another addition to the long list of endemics in these mountains.
