mcmurtryi: for Mr D. McMurtry

H. koelmaniorum var. mcmurtryi is a smaller relative of H. koelmaniorum. It is smaller in size with more prominent surface markings. Leaves are shorter, more squatter and can be obscurely windowed. It is quite variable regarding tubercles and venation.

H. koelmaniorum var. mcmurtryi was described near Loskop Dam and now it is known from several localities around.

Similar as with H. koelmaniorum, var. mcmurtryi can be easily propagated by seeds, from the leaves also, but it makes more proglem due to the size. Keep it more in shade.
