Conophytum hermarium (Smorgenskadu)

This is a member of section Verrucosa which just consists (sensu "Dumpling") of three species from western Bushmanland. The type colony on the farm Smorgenskadu was lost for many years after its original discovery but was eventually rediscovered in the 1990s. Other colonies are known from further north on the farm Areb but the bodies of those tend to be fatter and squatter such that they almost resemble C. lithopsoides.
