S. tectorum "near Trieste"

Post by illustrator on Wed May 25, 2011 8:01 am

Excuse me for not giving the exact locality of this one: the habitat is very small and very accessible next to a road. The number of plants is quite high, but all on maybe 50 square meters. Rather vulnerable to over-collecting I'm afraid. Anyway, like to show these pictures from yesterday:

I return to this place every now and then because it's convenient "en route" and it doens't cost me that much time when I am in the region. It is also the first place where I found S. tectorum in nature without having directions (meaning: not read on internet nor gotten instructions where to go from someone). I like to sit there a while and stare at plants and scenery (and the odd karst-lizard), then shoot a bunch of photographs and go on with busy-life.
If I am not mistaken the houseleeks from this region were once called ssp. schottii because of a reduced amount of dark colour in the tips of the leaves. This is evident in some plants only, I guess that the first collected must have been such a clone.

According with G. Dumont, schotti is a synonym of tectorum tectorum var. acuminatum: http://stalikez.info/fsm/~root/xhome.php?f=semp/1a.php&rt=../semp/mnx/root.mnx&trx=semp/root_semp/1a

Yes, I read that also. But to me it is anyway interesting on basis of which characters a subspecies was once described, even if it is now no longer seen as a separate subspecies. It would not be the first time that new research (for instance DNA) would confirm the separate status of an "old" taxon which was not seen as valid for a while.

Yesterday, same locality. At home my plants are under 1,5 m snow. Here they are on the edge of snow, but mostly not covered.

Eventually these will probably fall down, survive for a while, maybe even a year or two, and then die without hope of reproducing in any way.
