Range Description

Aloe jacksonii occurs in southeastern Ethiopia (Bale region). It was supposedly collected at El Kerr in 1943 at the top of a cliff (1,050 m) by Major T.H.E. Jackson. M. Dioli who worked in the area in 2000 carried out a search to locate this species, but was unable to do so, but did discover a different and abundant new cliff-loving aloe which was subsequently named A. elkerriana (Carter et al. 2011). It seems strange that this new species was not collected by Major Jackson, so it is possible that A. jacksonii was not collected at El Kerr at all and somehow the place names got mixed up.
