Anacampseros arachnoides, commonly known in Afrikaans as haaskos (hare or rabbit food), is a dwarf succulent bearing ground level leaves and flowers reaching about 8 cm in height.
The plants occur naturally from Worcester in the Western Cape and eastwards across the Little Karoo, the Great Karoo and on to Uitenhage and Qonce, previously King William's Town in the Eastern Cape; possibly also in parts of Namaqualand.
The habitat is Nama Karoo, succulent Karoo and Albany thicket, mostly quite arid land. The western part of this region receives its rain in winter. The species is not considered to be threatened in its habitat early in the twenty first century (Frandsen, 2017; Bond and Goldblatt, 1984; http://redlist.sanbi.org).
