Ceropegia richardsiae – neue Art / new species

Ceropegia richardsiae Masinde

Ceropegia richardsiae wurde im Jahr 2012 anhand von Material beschrieben, das im Jahr 1965, in einer Höhe von ca. 1350 m gesammelt wurde, offenbar an einer staubigen Piste zwischen den beiden Orten Sanya Juu (in Tansania ?) und Engare Nanyuki (in Kenia ?).

Weiteres ist mir bislang leider nicht bekannt.

Ceropegia richardsiae Masinde

Ceropegia richardsiae was described in the year 2012 on the basis of material, that was collected in the year 1965, at an elevation of about 1350 m, obviously on the edge of a dusty road connecting the villages of Sanya Juu (in Tanzania ?) and Engare Nanyuki (in Kenya ?).

More is unfortunately not known to me so far.
