If you like the genus, read the damn paper.

2014, so it's pretty up to date.

No molecular data, but that may come some day, but good old fashion morphology.

Good habitat pictures.

Black Skeleton king is also more of a faculative rhenophyte also, something I've said an stated a few times now. the Green type seems fine, but not the black submersed.

Isn't this species going to be endangered? I know a guy who imported like 4000 plants and I'm going to buy from him. With all the different types of species out there and many of many selling and importing, what about its natural habitat???

Working with grower's/sellers= best route to preservation. Many are now growing rather than flipping/wild stock harvesting.


If you try and lay down the law, this often tends to back fire with businesses, and it is a lot of $ to many of them in that area. So a small farm where they live etc, = much better, and higher quality, permanent supply etc.

I've been looking for more of these papers with only some luck. I purchased a few buce's a few months back that flower weekly and was looking to ID them.
