Walker, Colin (2023). Aloe whitcombei Lavranos - a unique and highly localised Omani endemic. Haworthiad, 37(2) pp. 46–48.

Abstract

Aloe whitcombei is unique as the only Arabian species producing white flowers. In habitat it is restricted to the tops of immense vertical cliffs and it has a very localised distribution range being endemic to Oman. These features, together with its dwarf stature, make it an interesting, isolated species with no obvious close relationships.
