Notes on the genus <i>Ficinia<i/>: <i>F. pygmaea</i>, <i>F limosa</i>. <i>F clandestina</i> and nine new taxa from the south-western Cape. South Africa

By T. H. Arnold and K. D. Gordon-Gray


<p>Nine new taxa are described and a new combination is made in the genus <em>Ficinia</em> (Cyperaceae). An examination of <em>F. pygmaea</em> Boeck. and <em>F. limosa</em> Levyns leads to the conclusion that these two species are conspecific.<em>F. clandestina</em> (Steud.) Boeck., endemic to Ethiopia, is considered not to belong to Ficinia. Its true identity is unknown.</p
