S. dalmaticum or S. cv. Dalmaticum?

Some write about it as it is a species, the other as it is a cultivar.

S. dalmaticum or S. cv. »Dalmaticum«? So what it is?

There is no species described as S. dalmaticum.

At Sarastro Stauden they sell a plant labeled as » S. dalmaticum »Biokovo« - vom Sveti Ilja gesammelte Form (= clon found at Sveti Ilja).

Let's explain some geographical names first!

Biokovo is the second-highest mountain range in
Croatia, located along the Dalmatian coast of the Adriatic Sea,

Dalmatia (
Croatian the region is called Dalmacija) is a historical region in Croatia on the eastern coast of the Adriatic Sea.

Sveti Ilija (sometimes Sveti Ilja) is but 1.640 m high a mountain in Biokovo.

But attention please, there is also a chuch Sveti Ilija at 913 m above seal level in Biokovo mountain range. I do not beleive this church is in question here.

There is also no record of a S. cultivar named “Dalmaticum”.

Dalmaticum means coming from Dalmatia.

At Cactus Hobby Brno reffer to the plant as S. marmoreum ex Sv. Ilja pass 1.650 m, Biokovo, Dinara mountains, Croatia. The elevation given here is wrong (10 m higher than the mountain itself!).

No doubt Biokovo mountain range is but a habitat of S. marmoreum. So in this cases we are talking about S. marmoreum ….. Or maybe not?
