Cryptolepis socotrana

I found cryptolepis socotrana only in this location during my two week stay on Socotra. It grows in a crack in the rock face of the Kalesan gorge – out of reach for the goats and thus protected. But come the annual monsoons and it will be in a torrent of water and debris grinding against it and the rock face.
