Geranium dodecatheoides

My second new species from New Mexico is published, Geranium dodecatheoides P.J.Alexander & Aedo. Many thanks to Carlos Aedo, who knows far more about Geranium than I could ever hope to. Read the article here: The location where I found it happens to be along one of the most readily accessible trails in the Sierra Blanca; it is surprising that it has not been collected before, but so far as I can tell it was completely overlooked. So, one more reason to keep your eyes open outside, even in areas where you wouldn’t really expect to find anything too exciting. I’m sure I’ve stumbled past at least as many undescribed species as I’ve happened to notice… with luck, perhaps I’ll find another that I can give a name with even more syllables!
