This is most likely

This is most likely Carpobrotus edulis but why did it link to Carpobrotus glaucescens which is native to eastern Australia?

Re link to C. glaucesens

I have now come across two examples where UK carpobrotus identifications have linked to glaucescens which seems a very unlikely species to naturalise in the UK. Its range in Oz extends well into the tropics but perhaps far southern OZ clones may cope with a far colder climate.

This is presumably ...

... a flaw in the taxonomic database that iSpot uses.
