Hi there everyone,

I've just put a couple of pictures of Stenomesson variegatum yellow form up 
on the WIKI.  This is a strikingly handsome plant, standing 30 inches tall 
with yellow and green tubular flowers, from the high Andes.  You can find 
the photos at:…

John Bryan in his magnum opus "Bulbs" mentions that some authorities regard 
the species as synonymous with Stenomesson luteo-viridis.  Presumably, this 
form is the reason why as he goes on to say "..however, the latter (S. 
luteo-viridis) is described as having greenish-yellow flowers with distinct 
green keels, and as being shorter than others in this group".  The first 
part is true, though I cannot say about the later part.

Best regards,
David Victor
