A specimen in Kew herbarium that was collected in 1965 at Lake Duluti, Tanzania, had been identified as Sansevieria grandicuspis. Fresh material collected recently at the same locality was found to be Sansevieria dooneri, for which this is a range extension and a new record for Tanzania. The name S. grandicuspis should be removed from the East African flora. Keywords: Sansevieria, Tanzania, misidentification
