Agave cremnophila

Agave cremnophila is recently described from Oaxaca and brings to 10 the number of species in the group Striatae, up from the original 3 in Gentry’s book, Agaves of Continental North America. Here is a link to the paper published in the Cactus and Succulent Society of America journal¬† Agave cremnophila

I would like to note that my good friend Jeff Chemnick suggested the cremnophila, from the Greek, cremno meaning precipice or cliff, and the Greek phil meaning loving to give cliff-loving Agave.
