Conophytum loeschianum SB1138 (Lorelei)

A tiny nocturnal-flowering species that produces the small narrow flowers typical of the Saxetana section. It replaces C. hians in the more northerly part of the Richtersveld around the Orange River. Compared to that species, it can be recognised by the orange flowers and the frequent red keel line; it also tends to have smoother bodies.
