ⓘ Heterolepis

Heterolepis is a genus of flowering plants in the sunflower family. It has three or four species, all endemic to the Western Cape Province in South Africa.

Species Heterolepis are shrublets, generally sprawling and about 30 cm high, with a moderately large yellow flowers. In capitate inflorescences solitary glandular peduncles with surrounding green bracts with membranous field, especially on inner rows. Ligulate flowers are female, with a filiform lobe opposite ray. Florets of the disk bisexual. Strictly speaking seeds, fruits flask-shaped, silky, with a Pappus of two unequal rows of bristly, prickly scales. The leaves are alternate, usually 15-30 mm long, narrow and needle-like, sharply pointed, thick and tough, with the field set, woolly beneath. Rhizome woody, and the branches pubescence. Plants occur mainly on rocky Sandstone slopes in the mountains of Western Cape province in South Africa.

In the name Heterolepis is derived from two Greek words, heteros "different from each other," and lepis "data". This name was created in 1820 Alexandre de Cassini for a plant that was named Arnica inuloides by Martin Vahl in 1791. A year after the transfer of this species Heterolepis, Cassini changed the specific epithet, thus creating unnecessary combinations Heterolepis decipiens in 1821.

Heterolepis relationship to other genera of the Asteraceae are not well understood. This is due to the tribe Arctotideae. Some authors have placed it in the tribe as a matter of convenience, it is still possible to learn about it.
