Catunaregam nilotica (?)

Catunaregam species by Michael Plagens

Tugen Hills, Baringo County, Kenya. Dec. 2015.

The branching pattern and thorns on this woody shrub are distinctive. Normally I would want to see both flowers and fruit before attempting an identification! Strong paired spines at each node.

Rubiaceae -- Coffee Family
