Abstract

Here we introduce a new, distinctive variety of Conophytum: C. flavum subsp. novi- cium var. kosiesense, named for the Kosies moun- tain where it grows. This taxon is characterized by the prominent covering of the bodies by a dense layer of trichomes, resulting in a greyish-white appearance. This feature can be seen with the naked eye but is especially evident when the epi- dermis is viewed using scanning electron mi- croscopy.
