Three taxa of Ledebouria Roth are raised from synonymy to species status, with notes, diagnostic characters and distributions. L galpinii (Baker) S.Venter & T.J.Edwards is a narrow endemic in the Wolkberg Centre and was formerly placed within L. cooperi (Hook.) Jessop. The other species, L sandersonii (Baker) S.Venter & T.J.Edwards and L ensifolia (Eckl.)S.Venter & T.J.Edwards, are closely allied to each other, sharing a number of synapomorphies.
