Description:

Newly described (SA J Botany 2017, 111; pp 299-301), based on this specimen; fairly common from 700-860m on steep s and se facing rocky slopes; in seasonally damp soils and moss pads, to 25cm; only known from 3 collections - here, nr Leliefentein and on the Rooiberg, so yet another Kamiesberg endemic (about 60 now, with another 70 being near endemics!). Should probably be Redlisted as Rare.

From the paper: "This has led us to revise the concept of G. namaquensis, which we now restrict to taller plants up to 300 mm tall, with comparatively larger flowers with tepals
