Hi Chris
It would appear that there is something wrong with the web hosting facility for posting photographs.

I have tried several times in the last two days to post pictures following implicitly the instructions given in the How to section.

My pics are of a size that should easily load using the facility (ie 798 x 599) or 161Kb

Will you have a look and see if the problem could be at your end.

Many thanks

Anthony 1 (Anthony Morris)

Seems to be OK, Anthony. This was an 800K file, which the server resized. Apart from saving on upload speed, you don't need to resize before you upload, its not like the BCSS forum server. If you still are having problems, can you pm me with where it is going wrong for you please, and I'll try to get you through.

BTW, anyone know what this Mamm is? North of Ascencion, NL.

This was taken in NL, quite a distance from Baja where brandegeei comes from.
My thoughts were formosa, pseudocrucigera, or sempervivi. But I'm sure there are other possibilities. heyderi??

According to W. Plein, it is M. sempervivi, probably the form once known as M. caput-medusa, which keeps its radial spines for much longer than the more southern form.

Hi Chris,

I think that your Ascension plant is a form of M. formosa. I saw a similar plant about 15 years ago, also north of La Ascension, which superficially looked a bit like a sempervivum. I then called it M. sempervivum. Quite similar plants I found west of Concepcion del Oro, at about 2800 meters. These I also called M. sempervivum in the first instance, but now I think that these are also a form of M. formosa.

There was a more normal looking M. formosa also on the site, and nowhere near flowering - this was April. In fact none of the M. formosa forms (of which there were many), from SLP to NL, were in flower. M. pseudocrucigera was, and M. sempervivi was. So I'd tend to place it closer to these rather than just formosa.
