Abstract

A new species of Syncolostemon E.Mey. ex Benth. (Lamiaceae) from north-western KwaZulu-Natal (Utrecht), South Africa, is described. Syncolostemon aurulentus is notable in having conspicuous glittering golden glands on the leaves, bracts and calyces, which are absent in other species of the genus.
