Haworthia magnifica aff - M070320A East of Soetmelksrivier

One of my favourite plants with a very dark almost black colour. M070320A refers to the mother plant of which offsets may become available later. If  R070320A is used it will refer to seedlings from that locality which may not be identical to this plant.

It gives some ammunition to lumpers as it has resemblance to H enigma. It may perhaps be better to use a unique name for easier reference. Although Soetmelksrivier is in the Riversdale district and dark 'magnificas' are found at a number of localities in this area, this habitat is quite far removed from H enigma. Ingo Breuer's approach of aggregate Magnifica can be quite useful for this area
