Yet another excellent specimen of a plant species on Shuab beach of west Socotra.

Ballochia sp
I’m unable to determine species, it could be anisotes or ballochia, of which the leaves of this specimen does not fit either of the two, but the flower is very similar to ballochia amoena.

Non-glandular hairs on calyx, and specimen taller than 50 cm.
