Grantessa ramosa sensu Borojević 1967 

Borojević (1967: 204) assigned specimens from Natal (along with specimens from more westward coasts of South Africa) to Haeckel’s (1872) Sycandra ramosa  . This was originally described likewise from South Africa, including Natal. Haeckel’s description and drawings (p. 358, pl. 54 fig.1, 58 fig. 8) and those of Borojević do not resemble each other very well. Borojević’s assumption that Haeckel failed to recognize or draw pseudosagittal subcortical triactines remains uncorroborated.
