Conophytum uviforme TS607 (Uilklip, near Kliprand)

This is a widespread and very variable species, such that one wonders whether only one species is involved. On the Knersvlakte one can find small nicely-marked plants on a hillside and large unmarked specimens in the quartz at the base. Some of the smallest and best marked plants can be found in the Kliprand area and the photo shows one such plant opening its flowers in the evening.
