Adromischus maculatus

In spite of its name, the green to greyish-brown leaves in this species are not always spotted.
The plants are found on high sandstone slopes and outcrops in the Langeberg Mountains, from the Worcester area to north of George and along the Swartberg Mountains from Prince Albert to around Uniondale as well as near Beaufort West.
The horny margin that runs all around the leaf is a useful character to distinguish the species from similar ones, esp. A. triflorus.
