There are many Dyckia marnier-lapostollei varieties!
All true species!
The range of Dyckia manier-lapostollei in Central Brazil Cerrado is almost as large as this immense region. Sprinkled all over it this fantastic plant presents many, many variations.
There seem not to exist any big population of any of them and every population consists of a few individuals. So every plant is important.
This one here is absolutely breathtakingly beautiful and unusual.
