Common names:
See note below.
Notes: Although one specimen under this name (Drummond 8941), collected from the Chimanimani Mts, is present at SRGH, no mention is made of this taxon in Wild's original manuscript. In Flora of Southern Africa 33-7-2A (Hilliard, 1983) the species has been listed as an Endemic to the Eastern Mpumalanga Highlands. It is therefore most likely the SRGH specimen concerns a misidentification and Helichrysum homilochrysum is NOT a Zimbabwean species.
