This species is a phantom here in Brazil and a kind of Dodo (The extinct bird from Mauricius Islands). Science lost track of it in nature and almost everything as the dry straw within drawer.
With all the modern possibilities we insist in feed the termites with excicatas.
This plant grows close to a river with a inconstant course, the river changes its course continuously. The area is a sandy one adding to the instability of the habitat. The description was not that precise and we are still looking for this species.
Dyckia coximensis is our Dodo of the plant world.
We have part of an adult Dodo and half an egg shell in a British Museum of Natural History an leftovers of a Dyckia coximensis into a Herbarium drawer.
This phantom here gets intense red and pups madly.
A beautiful plant when dressed to party.
