Annotation Notes
07/22/2004 Dora Jakobsdottir  taxon changed Unknown Protea sp.
This photo seems to belong with two other photos of this species taken in South Africa Oct 1, 1975. 
07/23/2004 Dora Jakobsdottir  taxon changed Protea sp. Leucospermum sp.
This is not the genus Protea but Leucospermum which is characterized by the long protuding styles, lack of showy bracts surrounding the flowerheads, and often leathery leaves toothed around the tip. Florists often sell these flowers as proteas. 
02/14/2010 Dora Jakobsdottir  taxon changed Leucospermum sp. Leucospermum praecox (large tufted pincushion, Mossel Bay pin)
