Abstract

This paper updates the previously published list (Figueiredo & Smith, 2010) of 876 epithets used in the genus Aloe L. (Asphodelaceae). A further 32 epithets are added to the list. Some epithets for which derivations could not be traced at the time are relisted here with their meaning. This addition brings to 908 the total number of unique epithets used in the genus at specific, subspecific and varietal ranks. The list of epithets provided here includes their dates of application, meaning and derivation.
