One thought on “Ceropegia simplex (Schltr.) Bruyns

  1. Bruyns in his account of Ceropegia sect. Chamaesiphon in Mozambique, which is cited in this note on Ceropegia simplex, lists some of his recent collections of this species from Mozambique so it is far from extinct, just inconspicuous and missed by most collectors.
