Volume 5, Issue 2
  • ISSN : 1021-3589



The original spelling of the genus name Julodis Eschscholtz and the type species designation by Holm (1979) are reviewed. Twenty six species and 12 subspecies, including the nominal taxa, of southern African Julodis are recognized. Thirty new synonyms and one status change are proposed. Julodis chevrolatii indigacea is established as a new subspecies by elevating the infrasubspecific name to subspecific rank.
