ISI 2007-14. Aloe pseudoparvula J. Castillon

Described in 2004 (KuaS 55(8): 218 - 221) this A. parvula ally was named for its resemblance to that familiar species. It differs in its flatter rosettes of broader leaves with fewer tubercles and in its larger flowers and fruits, features that may recommend it as a hybrid parent as much as the frequently hybridized A. parvula. HBG 95207, plants from seed collected Dec. 3, 2002, by Röösli & Hoffmann (# 2502) in the Antoetra mountains, N of Ambatofinandrahana, Fianarantsoa Prov., Madagascar. $10.
