Peersia frithii

Peersia is a genus of only 3 species. They used to be included in Rhinephyllum, but the leaves miss the rough surface which is typical for the latter genus. They have a strangely S-shaped distribution area from the northern tip of the Western Cape, southwards to near Touwsrivier and from there eastward to the western part of the Eastern Cape.

The flowering plants were photographed 3 Nov. 2012, northeast of Prince Albert, the other two 9 Jan 2006, north of Laingsburg.
