Argyroderma fissum

This is the most common and widespread species in the genus, which occurs on the Knersvlakte in the southern part of Namaqualand. It will form mats of up to 30 cm in diameter over time. The flowers are up to 4.5 cm across and may be yellow, purple, or sometimes bright red.

The first picture was taken 15 July 2011, the others 9 Sept. 2009.
The last plant looks much greener and lusher, because it grows amongst Salsola and Drosanthemum bushes.
