Cheiridopsis peculiaris

A most peculiar (hence the name, indeed) species with leaf pairs (usually2-3) totally different in shape and position. If there is space to do so the lower pair lies flat on the ground. These rare plants occur on rocky outcrops northwest of Steinkopf.
The first three pictures were taken 5 Sept. 2010, the others on the same spot 30 Sept. 2011.
