<i>Thuranthos</i>: notes on generic status, morphology, phenology and pollination biology

By C. H. Stirton


The generic status of Thuranthos C. H. Wr. is discussed. A key separating the two species is provided. The genus is reported to occur in Natal for the first time. Field studies in Natal have yielded additional information on the habitat, phenology, fruit morphology and pollination biology of  T. macranthum (Bak.) C.H. Wr. Phalaenophily is reported for the second time in the South African Liliaceae. The relationship of T. macranthum with the moth  Diaphone eumela (Cramer)—Noctuidae, Hadeniae, is discussed
