Alepidea multisecta B. L. Burtt

Slit-leaved Alepidea (Alepidea multisecta)  

The slit-leaved Alepidea is only known from the type material that was collected in 1910 at Gaika’s Kop, a 1963 m high, isolated elevation in the Amathole Mountains in the South African Eastern Cape Province.  

Various searches for the species have failed and it must be considered likely extinct.
