Perdicium is a genus of African plants in the gerbera tribe within the daisy family.[2][3]


Several dozen species have at one time been considered members of Perdicium. Almost all of them are now regarded as better suited to other genera (Acourtia Ainsliaea Chaptalia Gerbera Haplocarpha Holocheilus Leibnitzia Leucheria Perezia Trixis). Only two remain:

Perdicium capense L. - South Africa
Perdicium leiocarpum DC. - South Africa
