    Thank-you for the info. I was puzzled because seemed that there were 2 varieties of C. divaricata? One was just C. divaricata divaricata and the other C. d. bifaria? However, some sources differentiate C. divaricata vs. C. bifaria....maybe one is newer accepted classification? I was guessing C. d. bifaria due to location and also because sepals remained green....were not maroon.

    The authors in the FNA treatment make mention of that:

    I'm trying to guess size based on a photograph, so if it is overall smaller, then perhaps it is C. bifaria.
