Interesting Satyrium


Closest ID is in the Klein Karoo field guide, S. pygmaeum. However, the description of the plant mentions straight spurs whereas this species has distinctively upward curving spurs. Was found on South-facing slope in a rocky area.

Disa polygonoides - Entabeni Forest


Could not believe my luck - found only three plants after an extensive search. Only 4 known localities in the old Transvaal. Quite common in kwaZulu-Natal as far as I know.

Disperis lindleyana - Entabeni Forest


One of my absolute favourite genera - I just love these little alien beasties! They are quite prolific when found.

Interesting bit of trivia: they are relatively rare in their natural habitat ("locally abundant"), but they have colonised pine plantations where they grow in patches 2 or 3 metres across with hundreds of plants per patch.
