This an old blog that I am reviving at the moment. My home made websites work well and I would like to continue with them. Blogger however is so easy to deal with now and saves a lot of time. I shall therefore place posts here and may transfer some to my other websites later that are better indexed for specific searches. The indexing/content of the old posts need to be improved - Will work on it bit by bit. You are welcome to leave comments - unfortunately I cannot reply to them as it causes Firefox errors.


Euphorbia gamkensis

This species described by Gerhard Marx is only known from the Calitzdorp area. The plants are smaller than Euphorbia colliculina which occurs further to the east in the Oudtshoorn district. 

Occasionally the plants may have some resemblance to Haworthia decepta which occurs way north of the Swartberg.  The inclusion of this species (and numerous others) as forms of Euphorbia decepta ( Bruyns, P.V.) is likely going to cause much confusion.

Euphorbia gamkensis
Occasionally found east of Calitzdorp.
