Conophytum antonii CR1457 (9km W of Gamoep)

As far as is known, this recently-described species occurs on just one quartzite hill. It was first observed by Anthony Mitchell (hence the name) in the early 1980s but only introduced into cultivation when refound by Hammer and Arthurs about 20 years later. It is probably related to the somewhat larger C. violaciflorum which grows in the Springbok area.
