  • Notes: Greyia radlkoferi Szyszyl (family Melianthaceae) is an important medicinal plant species indigenous to SouthAfrica and Swaziland (Nogemane & Prinsloo 2018). With commercial cultivation of indigenous medicinal plants becoming a priority in the Biodiversity Economy Strategy of the South African Government, knowledge generation on pest and disease management, which begins with pest and disease identification, is of practical and economic significance.
