Front cover: Although acquired under the name Stapelia curtisii, it is generally accepted to be a synonym of Orbea variegata.  it is endemic to the Eastern Cape of South Africa.  Despite O. variegata probably being the most common, and first stapeliad, grown by beginners to the hobby, its flowers are nevertheless impressive and long-lived, but a little smelly if they are exposed to sunlight!  (Photo: John Ellis)
