It is the considered opinion of some of our local botanists that descriptions based on a few plants collected from very few places in the wild or grown from seed in greenhouse conditions in Europe does not justify the changing of names of our local Massonias - which are in any case very variable.  Until a thorough and credible study has been done by experienced local botanists of all the widespread populations of the various forms of Massonia in the entire Southern Cape, let us keep to the names we know.
