Common names:
Notes: Although Liede (1996) in Annuals of Missouri Botanic Garden Vol. 83 page 283-345, mentions this species as having been recorded from the Southern Division, only specimens from South Africa are cited in the article, nor is this species present at SRGH. Until further confirmation has been found, the occurrence of the species in Zimbabe is very doubtful to say the least.
