Abstract:
A new species of Kalanchoe Adans. (Crassulaceae), K. crouchii Gideon F.Sm. & Figueiredo, is described from the Wolkberg Centre of Endemism, Mpumalanga Province, South Africa. The species is allied to K. luciae Raym.-Hamet, K. montana Compton, K. thyrsiflora Harv., and K. winteri Gideon F.Sm., N.R.Crouch & Mich.Walters, from which it can be readily separated on vegetative and reproductive characteristics.
