For origin see page 7 http://www.haworthia.org/wordpress/the- ... -database/
Catalogue # CC 0102
I have one and it was labelled H. mucronata v. polyphylla ISI 1400
Also see
http://www.theplantlist.org/tpl1.1/sear ... +mucronata
It's listed as a synonym of H. mucronata var. mucronata, is it a hybrid? the name seems to have been around since the 1940's.

I had very doubts between Sylvia and MikeT but finally I decided that MikeT is the winner with this plant. Thanks so much to all for your participation.
