I've added some photos to the wiki of Eriospermum corymbosum, a tiny 
plant we viewed on Cameron's Eastern Cape tour last January. It was 
raining which made taking photos tricky. We had seen a photo of this 
plant in the place we were staying and were eager to find it. We 
found only leaves until Rachel Saunders discovered one in bud. I know 
some of you are traveling with Cameron again in January so if you go 
to the same place, please look for this plant so we can have a photo 
for the wiki with it in bloom.

The SANBI checklist lists 104 species of this genus, but there is 
really very little about it on the Internet. There appears to be a 
lot of variation in species which makes it an interesting genus, but 
since there doesn't seem to be much of a fan club, perhaps there are 
a lot of "collector's plants" included. Are members of this list 
growing any of these? It would be nice to have more of them pictured 
on the wiki.
