Abstract

Recent investigations of all the recorded southern African species of Erica have been undertaken to establish the characters of importance in generic delimitation in the subfamily Ericoideae. As a result several anomalies have been found in the circumscription and identification of certain species and in the nomenclature of others. The corrections and alterations are published here.
