No, no, not a Deuterocohnia!!! It is a new found Dyckia!!!!!

Dyckias and Deuterocohnias arte well realated.
This is one of the best living proves of this.

It was found by a friend of mine, a farmer in Minas Gerais and this beauty lives in super restricted area of less than 20 square meters!!!
It is found anywhere else.
This population is now saved from Eucalyptus plantation.
My friend is going to preserve the area.
We are finding who will describe it.

Dyckia macedoi, now with round seed capsules.

Stripes are well visible in macedoi leaves.

Dyckia lindelvaldeae almost ready to show its scented flowers

I love the crab Dyckia. Dyckia pottiorum can carry the world upon its back

All its sprouts and floral stalks beginnings are on its back. 

So white, so beautiful, so different, a novelty in Dyckia

Joanae marcioi X reitzi white 

New species result in new spectacular new hybrids!

The plant is all over tiny white scales covered resulting on an impressive beautiful new Dyckia .

The leaf margins on the leaf tip are lifted up!

A surprise on top of the mountain.

This must be a Dyckia not yet studied.
It was found by Dr. Vilson Müller and Dr Alexandre Kinas in between Araçatuba Peak  and its neighbour mountain.
This was May 15th 2017.
The terrain was a bog one.

Flower stalks are as tall as Dr. Vilson.
This condithions is absolutely weird for a Dyckia to grow.
Bog is not a good terrain for a Dyckia and .....
Just 16 plants were found!!!!
