Dyckia estevesii and Dyckia pottiorum

  Here the two of the fan shaped Dyckias.
Pottiorum is much smaller than estevessi and its seeds  give rise to already fan shaped seedlings.
We found no  round pottiorum.
This young seedling below I found growing within a leaf axil of an adult pottiorum.
It still holds its seed.

Here down one can have an exact idea of the two species sizes.
