 Speaking of Massonia,
 There are two new species described recently, M. wittebergensis U.MÜLL.-DOBLIES,
G.MILKUHN & D.MÜLL.-DOBLIES. There are no illustrations in the paper...

 The first is pictured under M. echinata on PBS as the sp. from Tiffindell collected.taken by McMaster. Massonia sempervirens was sold by me a few years ago 2006/2007 under M. jasminiflora (originally from Dawie). As the name implies it remains evergreen in cultivation or only briefly dormant, much like Cyclamen purpurascens. It was also offered as seed by Gordon Summerfield in 2008 according to the papers authors.
