Nice, neat, compact ground cover of a pale blue-green coloration (not the kind you can walk on, though). Have to say, most Stomatiums look the same to me.. there are many species and all probably differ in some minute way. Remind me a bit of small, smooth Faucarias (Tiger Jaws). Rot a bit more easily, though
