Petalidium welwitschii

A harbinger of the Kaokoveld. Find Petalidium welwitschii, find the true Kaoko. You’ll first need to make your way through the Hartmann Mtns and Marienflüss. To our knowledge, this species is endemic to this very small stretch of Earth. In the second photo, bask in the weirdness of these two faces of P. welwitschii. These two branches actually derived from the same individual. And admire the Kunene River, across from which is Angola.
