Nameless and unpublished Dyckia species from Brahia

This plant keeps an extreme similarity to a plant native to Rio Grande do Sul, just shown here.
They need the eyes of an expert to tell them apart.

This is a  very beautiful and rare plant from the Chapada Diamantina, a huge rocky place where diamonds were found centuries ago. The area still produces some spare gems and and its rocky
fields are all breathtaking to the nature enthusiast.
Some more Dyckia species and other fantastic xerofitic bromeliads are native to that area.
