Dyckia delicata from Tomba Bodes slope - Rio Grande do Sul

Dyckia delicata  from Tomba Bodes Slope.
Tomba Bodes refer in Portuguese, Tip Goates Slop,to a very vertical slope in  
Dyckia delicata habitat.
Being virtually impossible to reach but to the  very skilled and  expert alpinists this red variety was not even recognized as Dyckia delicata less than two years ago.
The plant is not at the reach by the bare eyes of the Dyckia searchers.
One must climb a vertical slope to get close to it.
A fantastic plant.
More are to be revealed from the very same region in Rio Grande do Sul.
