Senecio euryopoides DC.
Status and Criteria
Data Deficient - Insufficient Information
|L. von Staden|
|This species is possibly a range-restricted habitat specialist, and possibly threatened by habitat loss and degradation due to agricultural expansion. With current available data it is however not possible to determine its risk of extinction.|
|South African endemic|
|Eastern Cape, Western Cape|
|Langkloof near Uniondale and Joubertina.|
Habitat and Ecology
|Marshes and seeps.|
|If it occurs on lower slopes, this species is probably threatened by habitat loss and degradation due to agriculture, mainly crop cultivation and damming of streams.|
This species is poorly known. There are only a few collections, with the most recent dating from 1979. It may be overlooked, or misidentified as other taxa, as Senecio is in need of revision, and species are generally difficult to identify with certainty.
