7360.000 Platostoma P. Beauv.

GENIOSPORUM Wall. ex Benth.

Description of the genus

Comment: Platostoma rotundifolium (Briq.) A.J. Paton is recorded as occurring in Zimbabwe in Mapaura and Timberlake, 2004, p. 56. This was presumably based on specimens of this species (possibly held under the older name of Geniosporum angolense Briq.) in SRGH. However, Paton in FZ does not record P. rotundifolium for Zimbabwe and furthermore there were no specimens from Zimbabwe found in SRGH on 30 September 2015 which could be P. rotundifolium and we have therefore removed this species as occurring in Zimbabwe.

Zimbabwe: 1 taxon.
