Dionysia khuzistanica

From Semirom we went in a northwest direction towards the town of Lordegan. On this 1st of May 2003, in a gorge on vertical cliffs at an altitude between 1800 and 2000m we found Dionysia khuzistanica. Most of the plants were past flowering. Higher up in the gorge we found some plants still in flower, but most of them being completely inaccessible. Also this species has probably a limited distribution. In this gorge we also found an other dionysia species, these plants were very loose growing  and were restricted to one very shaded rock face only together with Dionysia khuzistanica. It turned out to be Dionysia caespitosa ssp caespitosa.
