Lanaria is a monotypic genus of flowering plants containing a single species, Lanaria lanata, occurring in South Africa.[4] Lanaria lanata is commonly known as Cape edelweiss or lambtails. The genus is placed in the monotypic family Lanariaceae.[2] The family has only recently been recognized by taxonomists. The APG III system of 2009 (unchanged from the 1998 and 2003 versions) does recognize this family.[1]
