Large population of this restricted and uncommon species

Author's notes

Easily ~100 plants in a mega colony that I stumbled across. They were super healthy due to recent rains. I have never seen so many C. clivicola in one area before.

Also a few Speculantha coming up too Matt! I had about 20 mins today and really quickly found this mega colony.
