Abstract

Until now, Album bifolia Baker was poorly known. Plants fitting the original description of A. bifolia were found at the type locality near Grahamstown, South Africa, during extensive field work for a revision of the genus Album L. Here we provide new data and a detailed morphological description for this species. Furthermore two new species, Albuca anisocrispa sp. nov. and A. pseudobifolia sp. nov., both closely related to A. bifolia, are described here on the basis of floral, vegetative, ecological, and chorological data. Both new species are described in detail, and affinities and divergences with close allies are discussed.
