Abstract

Adenia natalensis W.J.de Wilde, considered Critically Endangered and possibly Extinct according to IUCN Red List criteria, has been rediscovered in the lower Tugela River Valley in central KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa. This species was last gathered in the early 1860s and was until now known from just two collections, both made by William Tyrer Gerrard, with the provenance recorded only as ‘Natal’ or ‘Natal, Zulu-land’. Female plants are yet to be observed and described. A lectotype is designated for Adenia natalensis.
