Abstract:

Heinrich Wilhelm Buek described 34 new species and two new varieties of South African Campanulaceae, based on the collections of C. F. Ecklon and C. Zeyher and published in their Enumeratio Plantarum Africae Australis Extratropicae in 1837. Holotypes for the names of these taxa have been identified in the herbarium of the Swedish Museum of Natural History in Stockholm, Sweden (S). The types are provided with Buek's handwritten descriptions agreeing more or less verbatim with those published. The only species not belonging to Campanulaceae, viz. Merciera heteromorpha H. Buek, is lectotypified. The new combination Wahlenbergia thunbergii (Schult.) B. Nord. is introduced for the widespread species known as W. uitenhagensis (H. Buek) Lammers and new combinations are made for its two varieties. Lightfootia ciliata var. major Sond. and Roella eckloniana var. pubescens Sond. are lectotypified.
