- Identification: Oscar Ribeiro (2012-10-21) =Unidentified
- I just got confirmation that this is not Dyckia granmogulensis although collected in Gr√£o Mogol also. To my surprise, another Dyckia also collected in Gr√£o Mogol in 2007 just bloomed and was confirmed to be the granmogulensis. Will post the shots at the FCBS site. Resuming: the plant shown is still to be identifyed. Good: a new challenge ahead. (Sent: email@example.com)
- Add Note: Oscar Ribeiro (2012-10-21) - I¬īve failed to mention that the identification was only made possible because of Derek Butcher and Peter Sack¬īs assistance, that is, Peter digitalized - in record time - the holotypes deposited at the University of Heidelberg, Botanical Garden and Herbarium HEID, Germany.
Many thenks to both. Oscar (Sent: firstname.lastname@example.org)
