Pseudolithos migiurtinus

A rare endemic from dry regions of eastern Somalia. This is one of the most unusual members of the Asclepiadaceae or milkweed family, with highly succulent stems patterned with irregular, rather warty looking, hexagonal tubercles –(podaria) giving this plant the appearance of a curious, rough stone – which is reflected in its generic name, which translates “false rock”. source
