We lost a Lithops

Postby chvb » Wed Jun 17, 2015 10:53 pm

In the new MSG bulletin there was a big article on Dinteranthus. Based on DNA research Lithops vallis-mariae is moved to Dinteranthus.
DNA is more important than big seeds compared to small seeds, the typical raspberry seedling of Dinteranthus and the complexity of the fruit.

In my opinion you can, with the same DNA research, put all Dinteranthus in Lithops.

By the way. I am not changing the names in my collection.

One of the things I do not trust at all in Botany is the present day's "DNA Studies" .. it is flawed like hell ... it is like classifying car by analyzing the air in the tires ... it is essential for the functioning of the car but otherwise irrelevant for its character. I'm almost certain that many of these "high spirited" and hasty changes will be reverted as science goes on ... JMHO

Hallo,

as far as I remember, there are problems with the DNA research, because it depends, which sort of DNA is studied.
We once had a discussion about Lithops DNA studies, which is lost. And there have been some similar problems.

I would like to read a copy, may I get a pm? Does anybody have a link to this article or the article mentioned above?

Viele herzliche Grüße aus Berlin,

Jürgen
