Devil’s claw (Harpagophytum procumbens) belongs to the Pedaliaceae family. This perennial herbaceous plant grows naturally in the Kalahari Desert and Namibian steppes region of southwest Africa. The fruit is a capsule protected by numerous curved spines which, after the splitting of the fruit, take on a claw-like appearance. The names Harpagophytum and devil's claw are derived from this appearance. The genus Harpagophytum includes two species (H. procumbens and H. zeyheri) with two and three subspecies, which are differentiated by three diagnostic features, fruit characters, leaf characters and geographical distribution.
