      Morning to All, this is from a plant, from the type locality,  given to me by Robin Frandsen, the discoverer of this stapelia, and he described it 1975 from the type locality in the Cedarberg. For a long time it was known as S deflexa,it was described before 1820 by Jacquin, from material in the Schonbrunn Gardens in Vienna, Frandsen (1975) and Leach (1985) argued that Jacquin's figure is most probably a hybrid,  and Brown (1907) mistook it as well and described S deflexa, as a consequence plants from Piketberg and Cedarberg were nameless, thus described by Frandsen (1975), but apparently plants were collected and known in 1943 by Gerrit Wagener.enjoy regards Loukie

      Hello Loukie, What a great shot! Beautifully grown plant, with the perfect foregound. Is the foreground a log/tree bark? Cheers, Marcel
