An exciting find -- Retzia capensis is a unique plant as the only member of its genus of the family Stilbaceae (Rourke 2000) with remarkable similarity to the iridoid glucosides of Stilbae. ericoides. It was first described in 1776 and is found in Sandstone fynbos from Hottentots Holland to Bredarsdorp. Although not a red data list plant it is not common
It is closely related to Kogelbergia verticillata which is also of the Stillbacae family and is a red data plant. Please take a photo and let us know if you see it.
