What succulent is this?

This amazing succulent was photographed at a friend’s farm in Southern KZN, near Kokstad.  It looks prehistoric.  Does anyone recognise it?

hey guys, thanks for the comments. it really is an unusual plant. still waiting for someone to identify it – maybe it will remain a mystery?

I have certainly seen this plant before, however cannot help you with an ID. perhaps try see if there is an image of it here.

Give Ernst van Jaarsveld at Kirstenbosch an email. He is very knowledgeable in succulents amoungst other things

Hi Niall,
that is Ledebouria ovatifolia – perhaps the ssp. scabrida. I can say more perhaps…
Write me please.
