Eriospermum dielsianum ssp dielsianum - R 3454 Patryskloof E of Worcester

I am never confident when dealing with the differences between Eriospermum dielsianum and Eriospermum  pubescens.  In the latter case the abaxial leaf hairs are pressed against the leaf and
have a golden brown shine. In the case of Eriospermum dielsianum the hairs are straight and tend to curl. I must admit they are still very close to the leaf surface. The flowers of the two species are similar.

The leaves are quite variable in shape, but are mostly heart shaped

I hope to supply more info later.
