Conophytum wettsteinii CR1427 (Vaalhuewel)

The species is best known from the area between Springbok and the Anenous Pass. It was an early discovery because it grows alongside the now-abandoned railway line that took copper ore from the Okiep mines to Port Nolloth for shipping. The plants shown above originate from a shady kloof that is further west and have depressed tops that are not normally found in this species. It might need to be described as a new subspecies.
