The first of our puzzles was a large tree - we were agreed on the genus (Strychnos) but needed to sort out which species. After checking the tree - still in bud, we agreed that this was Strychnos henningsii.
The eponymous Manilkara nicholsonii (endangered), of which there are several along this stretch of cliffs, were looking very healthy with a flush of shiny new leaves.
A little further along we found a number of a species of Gerbera growing on a fairly sheer face in forest shade and this has presented us with another taxonomic puzzle to be solved. We need to get back there again to collect fruits which should aid us in identifying this to species level.
