July 2021 - GotM - Cerochlamys

Post by Pattock » Mon Aug 02, 2021 6:53 pm

I look forward to finding out about these three species as I know nothing about them.

Just two comments on the Plant of the Month article linked on the website front page. Is SC Invigorator the next iteration of SB Invigorator? A good write-up by David Lambie, including the etymology. :grin:

Hi Pattock,

Which three species are those, I thought there was only one.

According to POWO:

Cerochlamys gemina (L.Bolus) H.E.K.Hartmann - published in Bradleya (1998) 16: 53.*
Cerochlamys pachyphylla (L.Bolus) L.Bolus - published in Notes Mesembryanthemum (1950) 3: 227
Cerochlamys trigona N.E.Br. published in J. Bot. (1928) 66: 171

*Heidrun Hartmann described another in the same issue as Cerochlamys purpureostyla (L.Bolus) H.E.K.Hartmann but then redescribed it as Brianhuntleya purpureostyla (L.Bolus) H.E.K.Hartmann in Bradleya (2012) 30: 57, bringing the total number of genera for this species to six.

Of course, other botanists might disagree.
