Dyckia fosterina robustior on top of the Papanduva Peak, last Sunday.

This plant was described by L.B.Smith in 1950

Pictures taken by Dr. Vilson Müeller.

Papanduva Peak is In Paraná southeast, some 64 km away from where I live.
It is close to Araçatuva and Anhangava peaks.
Temperatures can drop to -11°C during some winter nights frost, 
snow and icicle are common there.

These plants here present shorter and wider leaves and also bigger spines
 they well may be a different species. All plants are rubra.
