Abstract
During the course of writing up the family Pontederiaceae for the Flora of Tropical East Africa, my attention was drawn to the fact that the specimens of Monochoria collected in West Africa clearly did not belong to the same taxon as those which had been collected in East Africa. Very little material has been collected in Africa at all and the attention of collectors is particularly drawn to the fact that a great deal more is required. Spirit material of the flowers is required. or at least separate flowers should be carefully pressed, so that the width of the tepals is easily measured.
