The plant you have is certainly not the one I linked to. There is a 700 m of elevation distance between those two habitats.

Petit Mont Blanc is a minor peak in Aosta valley.

On my opinion your plant was collected lower in the Aosta valley at the slopes / bottom of Petit Mont Blanc.

But it will take an Italian to sort this out!

Ento, we need your help!!!

Any idea what CW stands for? Carlo DeWilde?

I-AO must be for Italy - Aosta!

I have this semp from Joop Huijssoon (Pseudo in this forum= joop huyslook)
The collector was Ceas Van den Wittenboer (CW)

But you're right: Champorcher and Petit Mont Blanc are not on the same place ! It's a problem

Upsss, my mistake about CW ...

I feel silly, but I must admit I have never heard of Ceas Van den Wittenboer! Is he a botanist or collector?

Hopefuly Ento will sort out this habitat's problem.
