[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I can not find any information on this very small and beautiful little plant that I found in the Tankwa Karoo, North of Cape Town.
The plant is not more than 40mm in diameter. (Not wider than two fingers)
I found it in a shady area of a steep hillside. The stones around and on top of it is untouched by man.
Can any of our botanists help with a name?

I don't know the name, but it's an interesting little plant, too bad it's taking up only a little in the centre, it deserve a closeup to get some details
