Note 1:Adiantum poiretii var. sulphureum recorded at this site, but not recognised in the Flora – see p. 432 last paragraph.
Note 2:Cystopteris diaphana is not recognised in South African floras, however, the morphology and habitat at some lower altitude sites seem consistent with this segregate.
Note 3: Included under D. japonica in the Flora, all plants seen matched D. petersenii in morphology and habitat.
Note 4: Visited by a few remaining members before leaving for airport.

Compilation of species recorded by P. Acock, A. Evans, R. Golding, J. Ide, K. Mehltreter, A. & J. Nel, T. Pyner, P. Ripley.
