Full Text:



A new species Exormotheca bulbigena is described from southern Africa and its relation to E. holstii Steph. is discussed. Morphologically these species arc very similar and can be distinguished only when fertile. The chromosome numbers, however, n = 32 for E. bulbigena and n = 18 for E. holstii, distinguish sterile living plants.
