Abstract

A new species of Aloe has been discovered at El Kerre, Ethiopia, the type locality of A. jacksonii. This new species, Aloe elkerriana, clearly differs from A. jacksonii in its size, inflorescence, leaves and habit of growth. It closely resembles A. hildebrandtii of Somalia, from which it differs in its pendant habit of growth, much longer and thinner stem, more sparsely branched inflorescence, and shorter brown–coral-red perianth.
