The Original Genus Ceropegia (Hard Cover) – Dennis de Kock
There is a very important reason for this new book. In the first edition, The Genus Ceropegia De Kock (2017), photos of no less than 64 taxa of the taxa then recognized were not shown. Since the publication of that book some new species were also described, making it 310 taxa recognized here.
In this new edition photos of 251 taxa and drawings of 42 taxa out of the 310 taxa are shown. The layout is also much improved, as you will notice, and, hopefully, it is free of any errors. Huber (1957) divided the genus Ceropegia into sections, based on certain morphological differences amongst the various taxa. Bruyns, Klak and Hanaček (2017) again divided their extended view of Ceropegia, which included Brachystelma, all the Stapelia genera as well as other small genera formally recognized in the Asclepidoidea, into sections. Kambale and Yadaf (2019), also made use of the existing sections. The section in which the taxon falls, is shown with most taxon recognized here.
