New Dyckia species from The Leprosarium close to Porto Alegre in Rio Grande do Sul

This is pure sheer novelty. Yes, species!
A very small red flowered Dyckia.
Pups like mad and would fit perfectly in that grandma´s sunny windowsill.
It can get sole deep red and covered by a fine coating of silver scales.
Sure you never saw one of these before.
South, the Brazilian Southernmost region form Paraná to the border with Uruguay
we are bond to find many, many new Dyckia species.
This region alone may exceed the official botanic number of Dyckia species for the whole Brazil.
This gives you an idea of what is about to come.
