A broad view of E. schweinfurthii has been taken here. It is distinguished by the combination of shrubby habit, glaucous leaves and more or less entire cyathial appendages. However, it is extremely variable and a number of very distinct forms are found but with numerous intermediates. Provisional and further investigation may lead to the formal recognition of more taxa within this complex.
