Note
The original description of Kalanchoe delagoensis carries the three-word diagnosis, “Flores saturate rosei”, and a good argument may be made in favour of this name. For this work, however, I have followed the treatment used in Flora Zambesiaca 7, 1: 67 (1983) which considers this to be insufficient and maintains the name Bryophyllum tubiflorum which is more widely used in African literature.
