The introduction of Haworthiopsis has now made it into the CoL and that means about 16 plants changed from Haworthia.

http://www.catalogueoflife.org...

There are other associated changes to Haworthia:

Tulista = 15 species from Haworthia
http://www.catalogueoflife.org...

And all the changes to this group of plants are summarized here:

https://www.researchgate.net/p...

But they include changes to Chortolirion (some moved to Aloe) plus Aloe itself being split into 4 genera. In addition to Aloe they revived one name from the dust bin of history and created two others to accommodate new phyletic groups (fortunately, very similar in their growth habit).

Kumara = monotypic genus for Aloe plicatilis
http://www.catalogueoflife.org...
Curiously the CoL has a second species in this genus, the very similarly distichous haemanthifolia.

Aloidendron = 6 species of tree aloe
http://www.catalogueoflife.org...

Aloiampelos = 7 scrambling aloes including ciliaris
http://www.catalogueoflife.org...

It looks like maybe I need to update my comment on Aloe plicatilis upon the rechristening of my avatar. Smiling

Fan Aloe (Kumara plicatilis)

Hi, Lin and Baja. Thank you for this information. I've been out today and hadn't seen this thread until now. Unfortunately, I'm going out again in a few minutes, but please be assured that I will take care of these genera when I return tonight.

This will take longer than I'd expected. I've already changed 150 entries, but I'm only up to Haworthia herbacea. More tomorrow, and then on to the Aloes.

I know you have super powers Zuzu, but that's a massive number of changes to make, so pace yourself! Smiling
