Lithophyllum impar Foslie
Holotype locality: Natal or between Natal and the Cape of Good Hope, South Africa (Chamberlain 1994: 153). Holotype: A. Weber-van Bosse; 1893; TRH A3-146 (Woelkerling et al. 2005: 40). Notes: Chamberlain (1994: 153) notes that as indicated on the specimens, there is some doubt as to whether Mme Weber van Bosse collected this material in Natal or Cape Province; the species has never subsequently been observed in Natal, and it is more likely to have been the latter.
