New additions to Derek´s Treasure


– Rather than deleting A. mucilaginosa I would leave it there and add ‘Now a synonym of A. extensa’. Because this sort of thing will happen in the future you should have a standard approach.

– Latest detail on Alcantarea regina is attached. I have finally been convinced to treat A. edmundoi as a synonym.

– New Dyckia. Enclosing details of Dyckia pontesii (Word doc and translation).

Nomenclatural correction in Cryptanthus Otto & A. Dietrich. (Bromeliaceae – Bromelioideae). A nomenclatural correction of the author name of Cryptanthus zonatus, an endemic species of Northeastern Brazil, is provided. A new synonym of this species is also proposed.
