A paper by Goldblatt (1981) documents the distribution of this plant genus
with an East African range for five species (southern Ethiopia to the Cape)
and Lord Howe Island (one species). This is of course a standard Indian
Ocean biogeographic pattern (East Africa-SW Pacific). Would anyone on this
list know whether there have been any further distribution records or
phylogenetic treatments of its phylogenetic relationships with other
Iridaceae published since the time of this article?
