A mass of Tylecodon wallichii subsp. ecklonianus leaves grow erectly upon the broad succulent stem. The blue-green or yellow-green, thread-like leaves curve individualistically but lack snake-heads, not quite up to Medusa standards.
It is easy to spot the channelled or grooved upper surfaces on some of the leaves. Maybe the grooves are not always present as there are few unambiguously grooved surfaces showing in the photo, although some flat ones are also present among the many convex ones.
The linear leaf-shapes are smooth, glabrous, mostly ending abruptly in truncated fashion. This lush plant was encountered at Naries west of Springbok during August in a year of lavish Namaqualand blooming (Frandsen, 2017; iNaturalist).
