Abstract

The only area of endemism for Cliffortia L. outside of the Cape Floristic Region (CFR) is centred in the northern KwaZulu- Natal Drakensberg. Eleven species of Cliffortia have been recorded from KwaZulu-Natal and distribution maps are provided for each. Clarification of the circumscription of C. browniana Burtt Davy is discussed and a new species, C dracomon- tana. is described. C. paucistaminea Weim. is subdivided into two varieties: var. australis and var. paucistaniinea Comments on some of the other species that have frequently been misidentified are also provided along with a key to all the species in the area.
