MANNING, John C.  and  VAN WYK, Pieter C.. Chlorophytum boomense (Agavaceae) is a synonym of C. namaquense from southern Namibia and the Northern Cape, South Africa. Bothalia (Online) [online]. 2021, vol.51, n.2, pp.1-3. ISSN 2311-9284.

Chlorophytum boomense (Agavaceae), a local endemic from southern Namibia, is found to be morphologically indistinguishable from C. namaquense, which ranges from southern Namibia to central Namaqualand, and is consequently synonymised in that species.

Keywords : Greater Cape Floristic Region; Namaqualand; Namibia; Taxonomy.
