Rubus steudneri ?

Rubus species in Kenya, photo © by Michael Plagens

Photographed near Timbaroa, Kenya. January 2012.

The stems are lined with small, but sharp prickles, and as the numerous weak stems bend and lean against themselves and other plants they form an impenetrable thicket. Getting to the edible berries can be an arduous task.

Rosaceae -- Rose Family
