Abstract

A detailed study of Lampranthus has shown that several of its species are more closely related to other taxa within the Aizoaceae than they are to Lampranthus. Here some of these anomalous species are transferred to the genera Esterhuysenia, Oscularia, Antimima, Erepsia and Ruschia. A new genus, Phiambolia Klak, is erected to accommodate a group of taxa which cannot be placed in any of the existing genera. The appropriate new combinations are made. In addition, the new species Phiambolia mentiens Klak, Brownanthus lignescens Klak, Acrodon deminutus Klak, Lampranthus procumbens Klak and Drosanthemum quadratum Klak are described.
