Glumicalyx goseloides grows among the rocks high up in the Drakensberg and the Malutis. The genus comprises six species of dwarf shrublets and perennial herbs in southern Africa, mainly in and around Lesotho. The leaves of Glumicalyx plants are covered in glandular hairs. Their flowers grow in compact, nodding head-like spikes.
They produce nectar near the base of the ovaries at the base of long, thin flower tubes; probably reserved for specialist, long proboscis pollinators (Manning, 2009; iSpot; www.gateway.myspecies.info).
