Abstract

Anacampseros decapitata Burgoyne & J. van Thiel, a representative of the predominantly succulent family Portulacaceae, was recently described from the North West Province of South Africa. It is most closely related to A. subnuda Poelln., with which it co-occurs. It differs from the latter in having shiny-smooth, near-globular leaves, and a unique vegetative distribution mechanism, in that the tips of vegetative stems become dislodged and blow along the ground like tumbleweeds.
