And guess what! Here is my mystery Ochna again. I have downloaded the Sabonet PDF for Trees of Botswana to na avail in finding an answer. On deep red can I say Kalahari sand? Forming a small tree. Flora Zim say a specimen of O pretoriensis was found near the Shashe River on their side. Must be the same thing. Dont know if this is saxicolous O pretoriensis though?

Description

On 29 June 2022 I submitted photos of the plant hopper nymphs and have waited for them to change. Well 3 months later these pale creamy white moth-like adults with some orange flecks, dots and colour around the face have emerged. The branches of the parsley trees are covered with them. When I have disturbed them they seem to hop before flying to a nearby branch where they immediately settle. It is impossible to capture them in flight they are so fast. Remains of the white planthopper nymphs remain caught on trunks and among the adults and are also scattered beneath the small parsley trees. The parsley trees appear the preferred tree to settle and breed on.
