Three taxa found in the high mountains of East Africa are transferred from Philippia Klotzsch to Erica L., resulting in the following new combinations: Erica johnstonii (Schweinfurth ex Engler) Dorr, E. trimera subsp. abyssinica (Pichi-Sermolli & Heiniger) Dorr, and E. trimera subsp. meruensis (R. Ross) Dorr. A neotype is selected for Philippia johnstonii Schweinfurth ex Engler, which is the basionym of E. johnstonii. A key to the five subspecies of E. trimera (Engler) Beentje also is provided.
