Neotype: South Africa, Cape, Witpoortsberg, 2000-3000 ft, Drege 8212, S [2583], designated by Bruyns (Bothalia 42: 240. 2012); duplicates: BM, HBG - 2 sheets, K, MO, P, S, W- 3 sheets. This was superceded by S. Carter (Euphorbia World 10: 18. 2014), who designated Drege 7 at K as the new neotype (collected 18 Nov. 1912, near Port Elizabeth, South Africa), so that the same specimen would not serve as the type of both E. horrida and E. polygona.
