Image notes:Literature: "Stapeliads in Rhodesia" by D.C.H.Plowes, Excelsa No 1, 1971. He comments appropriately "...numerous transparent whitish curly hairs are each tipped with a minute clear glistening pearl". Comment: although now classed as "Critically endangered", this was not the case in Nuanetsi in 1964, and hopefully will still be so now. As can be seen from image number 1, flowering was prolific.
