The SRGC website  houses the archive of James C. Archibald :…
  and from the field notes of  J.C. Archibald's
Trip 30. JCA15500 - 15880 South Africa 12th March - 28th March 1996 -
a trip undertaken in the company of Panayoti Kelaidis…
- we can see that this Albuca seed under the original collection number  
15856 was collected  on 25th March 1996.
Collection area given under heading of Lesotho / Orange Free State, 
Drakensburg Mont aux Sources.
3000m  No species given at that time.

However, from the master Archibald seedlist  we can read that "3.005.700 
Lesotho, Drakensberg, Mont-aux-Sources. 3000m. Gravelly cliff-ledges. (5cm.)

I think it likely that this is the Albuca species shown by Rimmer.
