Conophytum bicarinatum (Skitterykloof)

The largest member of the southern Minuscula section; it occurs in its typical form in just one valley that is these days known as Hartnekskloof (Skitterykloof would translate as diarrhoea valley!). Other colonies of plants at the Tra-tra river and Nuwerus in the Cedarberg have been assigned to this species but are really rather different.
