Observation 196802: Lasallia hispanica (Frey) Sancho & A. Crespo
When: 2015-01-17
Who: zaca
No herbarium specimen

Notes: This was my 2nd observation of this species. It was unexpected, since its habitat is restricted to high elevations, while this specimen grew at an elevation around 650 m. According to the reference L. hispanica was always found above 900m, where it shares the habitat with L. pustulata (the most common species here, which is usually infertile).
