Dear Brian,
Sorry, I could not pull up this address, and a search in Geocites did not
find it either!!

Ref Cyrtosperma chamissionis....this sure doesn't fit the physical
characteristics of the other Cyrtospermas that I know. Is this a valid name
and identification??

Dear Russ,
Which species have you seen??? Cyrtosperma merkusii used to/does occur in
+ - 20 cultivars in the Pacific region (I have acess to two here in
Florida), some spiny, some not. Alistar Hay did a great paper on this
genus some time ago based on the knowledge he had at the time, and discussed
the spiny petioled vs. the smooth petioled forms/clones., and C.
chamissionsis, (an old Schott name as 'Arisacontis Chamissonis' ( 1897) was
placed into synonomy with it years ago.

Hi. This is definitely not my area of knowledge and didn't realize this
genus was so large and varied. I was under the impression all were of the
spiney persuasion, and much smaller plants than these obviously are. I
have the common C. johnstonii and have seen a couple others in years past
that were also spiney. So....you'll have to bear with my ignorance while
I learn about this interesting genus. I'm really surprised at the
towering size of these guys. Thanks for the info Julius.
