Aylostera ID

Post by Astro » Tue Jun 22, 2021 12:41 am

I have this as 'Aylostera sp. nova Heger & Alber, Incahuasi, Bolivia' from ADBLPS seed, unfortunately without field number (other than the collectors) but with what I think is a Uhlig catalogue number (U4715). It has nice, dark cherry red flowers which my phone camera was unable to capture properly and short, bristly spines. Anyone want to suggest a species name?

For reference, the plants are in a 2.5" square pot.

I posted a pic of mine last month viewtopic.php?f=1&t=171497&p=311261#p311261 My best guess was supthutiana, though that wasn't very well researched.

As Phil says, the flower is like supthutiana, but I think it is perhaps as the label says, a new species, as the body is pretty different.

I missed that thread... I'll update my label to 'aff. supthutiana' with the understanding that it may turn out to be something else eventually.
