IDM Cape Peninsula - Cryptic Spiderhead - Serruria inconspicua

A solid black dot indicates where the species is found.

Serruria inconspicua - Cryptic Spiderhead is a sprawling, small, few-flowered version of Serruria fasciflora. Se inco is only known on the Peninsula from Froggy Farm. The population is just surviving on the edge of the fire belt below the really steep slopes at the Block House Gap.

We have only four records for this species. It would be nice to have a local resident visit the populations every month and record their state of flowering and growth.

It is strange that it only occurs at this one place. Perhaps the slopes south of the Block House Gap may benefit from more atlassing.
