Description:Variety Description - Characters as given in key to varieties.

Distribution and Ecology - In stony campo on western exposure, probably near 1000 m, known only from the type-locality in extreme s.-w. Distrito Federal, Brazil.


This interesting plant is in many respects intermediate between M. radula sensu lato and M. lanuginosa, to which I have subordinated it on account of the pronounced arborescent indumentum.
