This member of the Sapindaceae family was described by Hutchinson in 1932. It is found in the Cape province of South Africa and Namibia, growing in well-drained soil with little to some water and lots of sun. It can grow up to 15 ft, the flowers are green and red, very attractive 3-lobed inflated red seed capsule, and it can only be reproduced by seeds. See picture.
Erythrophysa alata looks very similar to Erythrophysa transvaalensis but with wider leaflets than Erythrophysa transvaalensis.
