Willdenowia affinis Pillans

Table Mountain Willdenowia (Willdenowia affinis)

This species is known from the type material only which was collected in 1918 from the northern slopes of the Table Mountain near Cape Town in the Western Cape province of South Africa.

The area in which this plant was found is now overgrown by alien plants and the species was never found since the collection of the type and is thus most likely extinct. [1]
