Can anyone help with an ID of what I think is a parasitic plant on this tree? Seen in the western part of Mapungubwe in late October 2014.

She doesn't know either but has a theory. It doesn't look like you normal "voelent" but it might be that the tree had a hollow that some seeds germinated in that can cause it to look like the plant is growing in the tree.

She's not that big a sanparks fan as I'm give her a knitting, quilting, crotchet, embroidery. ect forum and she'll be there.

Many thanks to you and your mom, NetEk, I agree that's a likely idea. :thumbs_up:

Still hope that someone may have some idea what the plant might be ..... :whistle:

Your first plant may be Sida cordifolia subsp. maculata

Your second plant: This is 2 in 1 photo! The stem of the flowers are different than the dead leaves and green stems in the back ground. The flowers, are of a climbing/scrambling plant, which I think, are those of Ipomoea shirambensis, this plant is only found in the northern regions of Limpopo. It flowers before making leaves. The plant with green leaves and thorns look like a Spikethorn (may be Gymnosporia putterlickioides)

If this photo was taken in Tamboti in the Kruger National Park, a known plant with distinct heart-shaped leaves found there, are Ipomoea obscura var. obscura. It’s flowers are yellow. They are widespread, but I think they go down just as far as East London region.
