Dyckia pottiorum, new fanned species

Dyckia pottiorum
Fantastic fan.... a white one.
Described by Elton Leme honoring the one who found it in nature  Senhor Anselmo Pott.
t is smaller than the already well known Dyckia estevesii and holds no relatedness with it.
This is a brand new beauty and few we know about it.
Its flowers are scented and they look like those of the  also beautiful Dyckia lindelvaldeae.
Spines are black and white scale covered to half their sizes.
Flower stalks are short and not a bot as tall as those of estevessi.

Here we can observe several leftovers from old blooming.
Thisis an old plant.
