Abstract

Within the framework of a taxonomic revision of Drimia sensu lato we here describe a new species from the Eastern Cape Province in South Africa. Drimia trichophylla sp. nov. is at first sight related to D. vermiformis, but it can be clearly differentiated by the flower and leaf morphology and distribution. A complete description is presented for this species, and data on morphology, ecology, and distribution are reported. Affinities and divergences with other close allies are also discussed.
