Haworthia flavens n.n. is related to Haworthia minima and similar plants, but has a tinge of yellow in the leaves. The leaves are mostly less sturdy, more acuminate, and somewhat similar to those of Haworthia attenuata although the plants are probably about a hundred kilometers west of the nearest population of the latter.

I also include a picture of plants originally from Platbos near the Gouritz River south of the N2. The plants are filed as Haworthia minima but have a yellowish colour perhaps linking to Haworthia flavens (from some 20 km westward).
