Authentisches Exemplar der kleinen und seltenen Kolonie von Cape St. Fancis vom Kap von Südafrika. Ein Endemismus, der seit 1929 bekannt ist und von Schilder beschrieben wurde. In jeder Hinsicht herausragendes Exemplar von absoluter Perfektion und großer Schönheit, blaugrau und ohne die mindeste Unregelmäßigkeit, sehr dicker Wulst und voll ausgewachsen, groß und attraktiv, keinerlei Zahnung, was ja arttypisch ist. Eine museale Schönheit und anderen Angeboten weit überlegen.
