Red Beauty

While on a quest to search for spiders and other sorts of bugs for my website, we came across this beauty. It was hiding amongst the grass, but was not to difficult to see because of the contrast of the red flowers versus the green grass. Would really appreciate an identification as we have no idea what plant it is.

    Sean, can’t be sure because you don’t give a locality. To the best of my knowledge I would ID this as Tritonia securigera

      Thanks for the reply Mike, The location is Westering, Port Elizabeth, South Africa – Is there a common name for this?
