Hi, I'm new to the SANParks Forums. I visited the Karoo NP in March and photographed the attached plant which I am not sure what it is. I guess that it could be a Hoodia or related species. Please help with the ID. I also attach what I think is Euphorbia stellispina. Is this correct?

Thanks

Hi MarianaD and welcome to the forums,

The second plant does look like Euphorbia stellispina.
The first one is Cylindropuntia fulgida var. mamillata, the boxing-glove cactus. It is an alien species and will be treated either biocontrol agents or with herbicide.

Thanks Megan. I thought it looked suspicious!
