Description:

A hemiparasite. Often found in the Senegalia caffra and close to the Agelanthus natalitus sp. Has grey-green leathery leaves which are elliptic shaped. Fruits are a bright shiny orangey red colour when ripe and right now they are covered in berries to the delight of the barbets. The barbets in our area appear to favour the fruits and they remove the sticky seeds from their bill by wiping it on the tree branches where the seeds germinate. Often forms round clusters on the host tree or shrub.
