Lobelia cuneifolia Link & Otto var. ananda E.Wimm.
Status and Criteria
|N. Hahn & L. von Staden|
|A very localized habitat specialist, currently known from a single subpopulation, but possibly overlooked in similar habitat elsewhere in the Magaliesberg. Its habitat is well-protected and it is not threatened.|
|South African endemic|
|Magaliesberg near Rustenburg.|
Habitat and Ecology
|Gold Reef Mountain Bushveld|
|Shaded seeps on vertical rock-faces in narrow gullies.|
|There are no known threats to this taxon. Its habitat is generally inaccessible and well-protected.|
This taxon is only known from the type locality, where it was first collected in 1945, and relocated in 2010 (Hahn 2013). It is likely that more subpopulations exist in similar habitat elsewhere in the Magaliesberg, which remains relatively poorly explored due to its inaccessibility. The population is not suspected to be declining.
