Conophytum brunneum (near Nuwerus)

This grows plentifully on just one hill in the Nuwerus area in the northern Knersvlakte. The locality is near to the N7 national road but surprisingly it was not noticed until the late 1990s. The bodies have a unique shiny texture and vary somewhat in colour from brown (hence the name) to green. There is a rare white-flowered variant. There is nothing else quite like it.
