Description:

Sapindaceae - Zanha africana, a new distribution record for Namibia.

Summary / Notes:

In November 2009, the author undertook an expedition to the botanically poorly explored mountainous area on the southern side of the Kunene River in the Kaokoveld of northwestern Namibia. The focus was a survey of the species of Euphorbia between Ruacana and Swartbooisdrif. Near Okauapehuri, about 15 km to the south of the Kunene River, a strange tree with paripinnate leaves and velvety orange fruit was noted. Material was collected and subsequently positively identifi ed as Zanha africana (Figures 1A, B; 2). The mature leaves (at least principal veins below, or rachis towards the base) and fruit are hairy to velvety in Z. africana, but hairless in Z. golungensis Hiern, the only other member of the genus in southern Africa (Exell 1966; Coates Palgrave 2002). The Okauapehuri plants were bearing fruit in November, which corresponds to the season (November to January) given for Z. africana in Zimbabwe (Coates Palgrave 2002).
