Mystery Oxalis - Garies, RSA

No idea what Oxalis that is, it is certainly odd in that it appears the petioles might function as spines when the leaflets drop, it has a very odd growth form for a South African oxalis species. Sort of reminds me of Pelargonium spinosum.

Hello All,

My friend Doug Dawson visited the Republic of South Africa in May 2013. While he 
primarily interested in succulents, he took photos of lots of other plants as 
Among them is an Oxalis, shown on the mystery bulbs page, with large, thick 
stems and
tiny leaves. Does anybody know what it might be?…
