<p><em>Albuca</em> <strong>crispa </strong>is a new species of section <em>Falconera</em> series <em>Trianthera</em> with crispulate leaves from the Great Karoo, known at least since 1947 but overlooked until now. A second new species. A<strong> grandis</strong>. from the southwestern Cape was previously included in A. fragrans Jacq. (section <em>Falconera</em> series <em>Falconera</em>). It is a robust species that flowers in winter and early spring and the styles are rugulose with ± isodiametric epidermal cells, unlike typical <em>A. fragrans</em> which is a more slender species flowering in early summer and with derived, smooth styles with fusiform epidermal cells. The recent discovery of a flowering population matching the type of <em>A. albucoides</em> (Aiton) J.C.Manning & Goldblatt (subgenus <em>Osmyne</em>) allows for a full description and illustration of this poorly know n and taxonomically neglected species that has often been included in <em>A. suaveolens </em>(Jacq.) J.C.Manning & Goldblatt. Lastly, examination of the type of A. <em>reflexa</em> Krause & Dinter from Namibia shows it to be conspecific w ith <em>Drimia indica</em> (Roxb.) Jessop.</p
