Hi there,

I just found some pictures of this plant, ocuring in the web. The flower looks like campbelliana, only in another colour, white-creame.

Does somebody has some informations, about this fascinating species ?

Regards, Moritz

I agree with Utriculus, we Utricophiles really want it. But I don't even know of anyone in the area who could do a collection. Maybe Fernando knows someone??

From my own research on the species, what Taylor says and my experience with the rest of the group I would think this plant is closer to praetermissa than campbelliana.

U.buntingiana's type specimen was collected from Henri Pittier National Park, Caribbean coastal range not far from Caracas. Another localities is known from Paraguana Peninsula, also in Venezuela.

As far as I know it hasn't been seen since the collections mentioned in Taylor. So it would be awesome if someone has re-discovered it. But I'll believe it when I see it. ;)

Fernando,

Aren't you due for one of your 'discover-long-lost-species' adventures? The U. buntingiana range within VZ is a lot smaller than the areas you explored in Brazil ....
