    Decided to add a couple crappy pics of my own to the list:
    D. dielsiana

    D. sp. "Lantau Island"


    These, along with about 6 other varieties, are being crossed for hybrids I've never seen anywhere else.

    Some close-ups on the styles of the D. dielsiana would be appreciated. It appears most of the plants labeled D. dielsiana in cultivation do not match Obermeyer's description - differing in flower parts and appearance of the seed. One of the D. sp in cultivation seems to match the species type descriptions however. Best guess is the imposters are perhaps a form of D. natalensis.

    i did a bit of reading on this too NAN on a cpuk thread,natalensis was the conclusion and they thought the only way to tell is as you have pointed out seed shape,as i bought some supposed dielsiana seed and did a bit of research,turns out a waste of time as they didn't even germinate

    Not too good a close-ups. The closer my camera gets to the plant, the blurrier the pic usually is. I'm lucky I got these shots. Howver I'm fairly certain this is dielsiana, especially after comparing pictures of the two species across multiple sources on the internet. D. natalensis always seems to have more elongate petioles, larger overall size, and a bit more tapering spoon lamina. I'll actually be receiving seeds of natalensis soon, so I'll be able to make comparisons. Plus, I've also read natalensis is the less common plant, with dielsiana often being mistaken the other way around.
