Abstract

Three new species of the African/Australian genus Bulbine Wolf are described. The new species are B. francescae G. Williamson et Baijnath from the Schakalsberg of the southern Namib Desert, B. vitrea G. Williamson et Baijnath from the Oograbies Mountains of the south-west Richtersveld and B. pendens G. Williamson et Baijnath from the Oemsberg Mountains of the central northern Richtersveld. The new species are closely related to B. diphylla Schltr. ex Poelln. due to the presence of two leaves. B. pendens is further characterized by pendant leaves. Details of the habitat and a record of the associated plants are also presented.
