Gasteria ellaphieae

provided by wikipedia EN

Gasteria ellaphieae, or Ellaphie's gasteria, is a succulent plant, native to the cliffs above the Kouga dam, in the Eastern Cape, South Africa.[1]

It is most closely related to the species Gasteria glauca, and also to Gasteria vlokii and Gasteria nitida. The flowers of all four species are also almost identical.

However it can be distinguished by its short, triangular (usually recurved) leaves, which are densely covered in tiny tubercles. Its inflorescence is often branched.
