This plant growing nearly rounded leaves with slightly protruding, obtusely pointed tips, was seen in Kirstenbosch in June. It was labelled with the old name for Dyschoriste setigera, viz. Chaetacanthus setiger; catching up with name changes everywhere is a process.
The leaves of D. setigera range from about round to ovate, the blades here fleshy and slightly uneven, the margins entire. Midribs and the little there is to be seen of lateral venation are very slightly recessed on the upper surfaces.
The colour on the upper surfaces of the thriving blades is dark green, apart from the new stem-tip leaves that are briefly yellow-green (Van Wyk and Malan, 1997; iNaturalist).
