Rediscovery of Ceropegia cycniflora

Rediscovery of Ceropegia cycniflora

Ceropegia cycniflora R. A. Dyer – this species was described in the year 1978, however, it was described from old photographies and dried material alone, since the species is known from only three specimens, all collected by the same collector and in the same place, the first in 1936, the other two some years later.

The species was since missing, and some believed it to be extinct (well, at least I did).


But now, in September 2015, Mr. Alcock discovered a plant that very much resembles what is known as Ceropegia cycniflora … I would call that a rediscovery!
