New Dionysia discoveries
« on: December 18, 2021, 08:35:24 PM »
For those interested I have added four newly described species to the AGS encyclopaedia. The descriptions are basic but the formal botanical papers for all four can be found by Googling them. They are D. avia, D. splendens, D jamzadiae and D. zeynepiae the last of which is particularly interesting having been found at low altitude barely 20km from the Mediterranean just outside the major city of Antakya, formerly known as Antioch. This extends the range of the genus by close to 1000km and raises the possibility of other undiscovered species in unexpected places.
