Full Text:



A revision of the genus  Eremia, in which seven species are recognized, and of the monotypic genus Eremiella is presented. Both genera belong to the Ericaceae-Ericoideae and are endemic in the south-western part of the Cape Province. The revision necessitated the inclusion of the monotypic genus  Eremiopsis N.E. Br. under Eremia. This is the first in a series on the minor genera of the Ericoideae in Southern Africa.
