The genus Bolandia (Asteraceae, Senecioneae) comprises two known species, B. pedunculosa and B. argillacea, previously included in Cineraria. Distinguishing features of Bolandia include the fusiform shape of the cypselae and strong median rib on the glabrous inner surface of the ray and outer disc cypselae, solitary ecalyculate capitula on long peduncles, and a truncate style apex with a central tuft of sweeping hairs. Bolandia occurs in the mountains of the Western Cape in southern Africa, with a disjunct population of B. pedunculosa in the Witteberg of the Eastern Cape and the nearby Drakensberg mountains in Lesotho. Bolandia argillacea is endemic to the mountains near Worcester in the Western Cape. Two forms of B. pedunculosa are informally recognized, a tomentose and a glabrescent form, the latter including plants previously known as C. albomontana.
