Dear SA WildFlowers,

Hi Alberto,

That's the trouble with common names!!

Harpagophytum procumbens comes from the Kalahari (RSA, Botswana, Namibia, Zim)
http://www.harpago.co.za/Project/part_1.htm

Proboscidea parviflora (and other species) come from America
http://waynesword.palomar.edu/ww0801.htm

Both plants and more are called 'Devil's Claw'.

Hope this helps
Maddy
