Hi All:

Alberto Castillo and i have published a paper about some novelties in the 
genus Cypella, and we would like to share the results with you.

A new subspecies of Cypella osteniana, C. o. aurantiaca that live in 
grasslands in Brazil, west of Uruguay and north-east of Argentina is here 
described for the first time. This subspecies can be easily distinguished 
from C. osteniana subsp. osteniana because of the orange color of the 
flower, and the convergent stigma lobes in aurantiaca and the whitish 
flowers with divergent stigma lobes in osteniana.

Also Cypella laxa has been cited for Argentina, it was formerly described 
for Brazil and Paraguay and Cypella laeta is cited for Uruguay, only cited 
in Argentina until now.

You can see the pictures and info in:…

Published in Bol. Soc. Argent. Bot. 38: 33-339. 2004.

If someone is interested, although the paper is in Spanish, i can send you 
the .pdf file.

Best wishes
