Did you know that... among more than fourteen hundred cacti species only one can be found in the Old World? It is Rhipsalis baccifera. All the rest originated in the New World. United States, Mexico and Brazil are among the countries with the higher number of species. This photo is a detail of a cactus of genus Mammillaria, possibly M. herrerae.

Aerangis luteoalba var. rhodosticta is a monopodial orchid species spread from west-central and east Tropical Africa to Ethiopia growing over the trees in shady areas of the forests. It was discovered in 1896 and originally described by the Botanist Friedrich Kraenzlin as Angraecum rhodostictum. In 1918 Rudolph Schlechter subordinated this species to the genus Aerangis where it is classified ever since.
How you can help
  • Joining to this subgroup.
  • Collaborating to develop the best Botany article ever so we can brag about it.
  • Reviewing our list of articles and adding important ones we forgot to add to the list.
  • Writing a draft or, even better, a developed article from our wish list.
  • Expanding drafts already started.
  • Adding this subgroup category when lacking on existing articles that belong here.
  • Adding taxoboxes to articles about species, genera, families and such. Every taxon is required to have one.
  • Adding photos to articles.
  • Inviting more editors and authors to join us.
  • Participating in our discussions.
  • Being active.
Good Botany articles and drafts

Let us know when one of your articles is approved or chosen for its quality announcing it here so other Botany members will know it is there and may wish to contribute or just read it. See Recent changes to know what Botany articles authors are working on.

If you are new to Citizendium and want to write a good article, we are putting together some clues on how to do it at how to write a Botany good article. Check them out.
