Dyckia dawsonii

Dyckia dawsonii as Bill Baker conceived it.
A wonderful plant.
Bill Baker is known to had been to Brazil.

This is the described  Dyckia dawsoni.
Isn´t it wonderful?

Dyckia dawsonii was never found in nature by anyone else since its description.
The plant local in nature was intentionally set incorrectly plant description.
This was common at that time as describers and those who sent collectors to wilderness  used to  be rivals.
The orchids history is full of this and their historic facts ruled the botanic world for more than a century.

When a plant was so spectacular and beautiful it was not revealed its place in nature.
So no one has found it in nature anymore.
