decumbens - Peninsula Whip-spiderhead is characterized by being a creeper with leaves
only divided once to give three tines, so that its leaves look like a row of erect braai
prongs along the stem. The leaves are also surprisingly succulent. With its relative Serruria
flagellifolia from the Kogelberg, they comprise a section on their own. It was
previously known as Serruria hyemalis. This is a very cryptic species!
Se decu is only known from the Kommetjie to Olifantsbos region. It is well atlassed at
Bonteberg, Olifantsbos and Klienblouberg (verification required please). Atlassers have
been unable to find it on Slangkop above Kommetjie, or at Sikelsvlei. Is it really absent
from the area between?
