Bottomley’s (1948) Gasteromycetes of South Africa is still widely used for identification purposes. However, as a result of developments since 1948, the work has become outdated in many respects. Entries in the Clathraceae are here updated and briefly commented upon and a species key to the twelve southern African representatives of the family is provided.
