Taxonomic list

• "The large number of endemic species is regarded as misleading and may be merely related to a 'splitter' taxonomic approach. This may apply to the six species of Lyginopteris described from Koksfloez..." (Galtier 1997). These six species are L. andrei, L. austriaca, L. heterangioides, L. lacunosa, L. schusteri and L. sturii.
