Abstract
Preliminary botanical explorations in the little-known Namatimbili-Ngarama forest block located some 35 km inland of Kilwa in south-east Tanzania have rediscovered and further confirmed the presence of two tree species, Erythrina schliebenii Harms and Karomia gigas (Faden) Verde., that were previously thought to have become extinct. Both trees are endemic to the Coastal Forests of Eastern Africa hotspot and to the Swahilian Regional Centre of Endemism.
