Hello everyone,

I'm proud to announce that I've just published, together with my good friend Paulo Gonella, a new species of sundew from Brazil, D.quartzicola. See a summary here:


This new species is endemic to the Serra do Cipó, Minas Gerais, and is extremely rare, known from only 4 small populations. Previously known as D.sp."Cipó", D.quartzicola seems to be most closely related to D.chrysolepis, with which it even forms hybrids.

The name refers to the habitat it is restricted to, white quartz gravel, similar to D.schwackei further north.

If anyone wants a copy of the full article, please send me a private message with your e-mail address.

Best wishes,
