Famatina was separated by the "famous/notorious" Ravenna from Rhodophiala, 
but its four species are discussed under the name Famatina in the AGS 
Encyclopaedia of Alpines, presumably by John Watson, who wrote most of the 
Andean plant entries in that reference book.

I don't know what that "Solaria" may be, but Tanya Harvey recently sent me 
a photo of the same plant shown on the Florachilena website, which she took 
on a recent visit.
