A population of widely scattered plants: difficult to estimate numbers. We only saw them while driving along the road to another point in the reserve where we were working. We must have seen about 30 plants from the road. No imminent threats

Lovely unknown Nemesia


This was the only plant seen in the vicinity. Appears to be a Nemesia, but none of the species descriptions in Cape Plants seem to fit it very well...Nemesia lucida appears to be the best match, but the distribution is slightly out, and the lower lip does

Only 1 individual seen, but the veld was quite old and dense and it was difficult to walk through, so there were probably more if one searched exhaustively. No imminent threats, but the veld needs to burn.
