Missing Lapeirousia

A few days ago I was looking at Manning and Goldblatt's Encyclopedia of Cape
Bulbs and noticed that there was no Lapeirousia silenoides listed. Where has
it gone? Goldblatt did a revision of Lapeirousia and maybe he rejected it.
If so, there was no indication of that in the book and nothing about it
under 'Synonyms'.  They also say there are 15 Lapeirousia species and they
give descriptions of 15. 

I also note that the Wiki does include L. silenoides. 

Does anyone know the underlying history? Thanks
