It can’t be close to purpurascens then.

But it doesn’t look like the cyanites I have learned to recognize.

On the other hand, there are a lot of sequences available of “cyanites” collections, almost everyone differing enough to be different species in a cyanites group..

it’s sequence is real close to the European C. cyanites. If I remember correctly this one does not go red with Meltzer’s and the purpescens group does.

Here is another picture of a younger collection. https://fbcdn-sphotos-e-a.akamaihd.net/...

it reminds more of purpurascens than cyanites, but I guess it’s not any of them..
