Don't Chironia have 5 petals?
I'm interested that pgs seems to know the history of the plant but hasn't ID'd it.

Lachnaea looks good, but very unlikely that Kirstenbosch "rescued" a common species.
More likely PGS forgot to add the ID, or that Anthony is going to ID it soon.

PS: yes sorry: Lachnaea and Chironia are one of my "dyslexic" pairs. apologies.
