Description:

This was on the banks of a small watercourse in fairly recently burnt veld facing east to SE. It looked something like a woody version of Cliffortia graminea. Could it have been a young Cliffortia strobilifera? In the end, I'm not even sure that it's a Cliffortia. It was about 60cm high

Description:

Redlisted as Rare
These pics are taken of "stukkies" brought back from an ascent of Blou Punt by our HAT from the MCSA (South Cape section) The co-ords are approximate. There were no perceived threats and the numbers are not exact. I believe it's better to have incomplete data than none at all. We are busy refining our systems for the HAT, so it is work in progress. Members of HAT are starting to do their own postings, which is a huge gain. They go to very poorly frequented places in the high mountains.
