ADROMISCHUS MARIANIAE "IMMACULATUS" Uitewaal
Section: 5 Longipedunculati

See also marianiae, antidorcadum, geyeri, hallii, herrei, kubusensis, Little Spheroid and Tanqua.



DISTRIBUTION
S. Namaqualand, Knersvlakte.

CHARACTERS
Plants usually have cylindrical leaves, but with great variation in marking and texture. As defined here, it usually has less rough leaves than
A. marianiae "antidorcadum", but it is difficult to differentiate. Probably more closely related to the lower-altitude A. marianiae "kubusensis", along the Namaqualand coast.

COMMENTS
All A. marianiae plants can be distinguished from all other species by the ever-present horseshoe shaped margin, although sometimes it is tiny at the tip.
