very nice to see some habitat picture, there are not so many available in the net.
I always look at the stones and soil beneath the plants because I want to make my pots look a little bit more natural by placing the right kind of stones with them.
I´m not sure, which species you pictured. There are L. schwantesii and L. karasmontana near Aus. Some kilometers away even more species and ssp.
Is it L. karasmontana ssp. eberlanzii? Does this locality have a Cole collection number?http://mesemb.ru/map/lithops.en#lat_-25 ... om_8_s_aus
