Flowering Plants of Africa is a peer-reviewed biennial series containing colour plates with descriptions of flowering plants of Africa and its neighbouring islands. The journal has become a collector’s item of the African and specifically South African flora. Twenty full colour plates and descriptions of plants appear in volume 66, which is dedicated to Gillian [Gill] Condy, SANBI’s recently retired resident botanical artist, in recognition of her passionate and unsurpassed documentation of indigenous flora. Contributions to this colourful edition include Moraea spathulata, Aloidendron barberae (artwork featured on the cover), Protea parvula, Agathosma adenandriflora, Chironia baccifera and Orbea namaquensis. Five new taxa (Cyrtanthus pondoensis Van Jaarsv., Albuca heydenrychii Van Jaarsv., Eucomis sonnetteana N.R.Crouch, Mart.-Azorín & J.E.Burrows, Acanthopsis pagodiformis H.M.Steyn and Senecio voigtii Van Jaars.) are published in this volume. The botanical art is mainly the work of Gillian Condy; other artists who contributed to this volume are Marieta Visagie, Ellaphie Ward-Hilhorst, Angela Beaumont and Daleen Roodt. A guide for authors and artists, and an index to species are also included.
