The identity of Lobelia minima Sims, a taxon described as native to Cape of Good Hope, is reconsidered. After analysis of the protologue and the morphological traits of the lectotype, a color illustration of a plant grown in a greenhouse, a South African origin is discarded and the plant is identified as Solenopsis minuta subsp. balearica, an endemic from Mallorca (Balearic Islands). Synonymy and a brief description are provided, and an epitype is chosen to stabilize the name at species rank, as Solenopsis minima.
