This is not Brachystelma dinteri but Brachystelma buchananii, note terminal inflorescence with several flowers open together and conspicuous tufts of white hairs on tips of outer corona lobes, B. dinteri is a smaller plant with more inconspicuous inflorescences at bases of leaves along stems, mostly yellowish flowers and without the tufts of white hairs.
