Very unusual! I think you need to post this on the ID forum.

The stem says 'Euphorbia' to me but I don't recognize those lovely leaves.

Could it be Uncarina stellulifera? If so the leaves will have a musty odor.

I was just going to say that the leaves look like a Uncarina. I don't know which one though.

Unicarina grandidieria?

No - U. stellulifera is closest I think.

I haven't seen a close-up of the stems of that one so I couldn't say for sure. It doesn't seem quite right some way but it coud be that it's a very juvenile plant. The leaves are certainly similar.

I like it! It's a caudex plant. Smiling I was so busy looking at the leaves and stems, I didn't notice that it had caudex showing above the soil line.
