Pleiospilos is a genus of South African succulent plants that belong to the Aizoaceae family. The name is derived from the Greek pleios (many) and splos (spot). The plants are also known as kwaggavy (Quagga mesemb), lewerplant (liver plant), lewervygie (liver mesemb), klipplant (stone plant) and split rock from their rock like appearance. Pleiospilos species have two or four opposite grey-green leaves that grow from a short stem that may be underground. Flowers emerge from the centre of the leaves. Pleiospilos species reproduce both sexually and asexually. Vegetative offshoots emerge from the root system.
