Faurea recondita (Proteaceae): A new species from the Sneeuberg Centre of Endemism, South Africa


Rourke, J P; Clark, V R; Barker, N P (2013). Faurea recondita (Proteaceae): A new species from the Sneeuberg Centre of Endemism, South Africa. South African Journal of Botany, 87:34-38.

Abstract

Faurea recondita (Proteaceae) from the Sneeuberg Mountains of the southern Great Escarpment of South Africa is described. It is distinguished by its shrubby, lignotuberous habit, small leaves, 30–55 × 5–15 mm, and short, 30–60 mm long, erect terminal inflorescences. The shrubby habit and occurrence in heath-like vegetation are shared with Faurea coriacea of Madagascar. As a consequence of its very limited distribution range, this species is allocated the IUCN conservation status of VULNERABLE.
