Ceropegia nampyana – neue Art / new species

Ceropegia nampyana Manudev, Kambale & Pramod

Ceropegia nambiyana, der Name in der Presse ist natürlich, wie so oft, falsch, die Art wurde zu Ehren von Professor Santhosh Nampy benannt, nicht Dr. Nambi oder Dr. Namby, wie es im selben Artikel steht.

Die Art ist offenbar sehr nah mit Ceropegia spiralis Wight verwandt und ähnelt dieser auch weitgehend.

Ceropegia nampyana Manudev, Kambale & Pramod

Ceropegia nambiyana, the name given by the press, is, as so often of course wrong, the species is named in honour of Professor Santhosh Nampy, not Dr. Nambi or Dr. Namby as stated in the same press article.

This species is apparently closely realted to Ceropegia spiralis Wight and also very much resembles it.
