Ismene amancaes

One of my two clones of this species always sets some seed (selfs); the 
other doesn't.  Its relatively short season of growth (though not as 
short as Paramongaia) might make it less of a hit on the global 
marketplace than Bruce suggests.  The mass gregarious flowering on the 
lomas is similar to what the related Leptochiton quitoensis (and 
possibly I. helianthus) do where there populations have been left 
undisturbed.  I am glad to hear from Norton that at least one of the 
lomas that harbor the species is being preserved.
