Agave Victoria-reginae Complex
by Kelly Griffin
Kelly will be sharing his love and fascination for agave plant genus by expending on the Agave victoria-reginae complex. The Agave victoria-reginae complex consists of three species, one of which has two proposed subspecies. Kelly will describe their native environments, and the morphological differences that were used to delineate the species and subspecies.
Hiding in Plain Sight: A New Cactus Species from the California Desert
by Michelle Cloud-Hughes
Cylindropuntia chuckwallensis is a newly-described cactus found in San Bernardino, Riverside, and northern Imperial Counties, California. Michelle’s presentation will describe how this historically-misidentified cholla was determined to be a distinct new species and the characteristics that distinguish it from similar cholla species. This presentation will provide detailed information on where to see the “chucky cholla” as well as many other intriguing succulents in the same areas.
