New Dyckias from up North in Goiás

All these habitat pictures are credit and kindness of Fabrício de Oliveira Pereira
a Discocatus lover  from Goiás in Central Brazil.

The region is continuously under severe drought and even grasses perishes and get prune to be afire.
These plants are also burned once in a while and the survive dormant till the rain rescue them.
Their leaf bracts are tightly compact.

these may be a natural hybrid. Dyckia burleimarxii was re found over there too.

 Old dried leaves and grasses are fuel for fires but Dicocatus and Dyckia survive quite well
to them. These plants are well equipped to  survive fires.
