S. diplotricha is a variable species, with a number of clones in general distribution. These are classified according to the Punter numbering system. The specimen shown here was exhibited at the AVSC national show in May, 1997, identified as Punter #7. Upon review, Dr. Jeff Smith has concluded that it more closely matches the published descriptions of Punter #0. However, precise identification is difficult, and this identification should not be taken as definitive. An image of another cultivar may be seen by clicking here.
