Aloe kahinii is a newly named species (2007), but familiar to explorers of Somaliland as far back as the 1960s. It was encountered in the SE of the country and assumed to be either Aloe inermis or Aloe luntii, both of which are found in Yemen. A recent revisit to this plant concluded it was genuinely its own unique species.
If you found Aloe inermis on Ebay in the last year or two (or in a SoCal nursery), you quite likely have Aloe kahinii.
