Image labelled Rebutia kariusiana[edit]

Sources such as Anderson (2001) are clear that in the wild the species generally has red flowers, although a subspecies violaciflora is mentioned. Pilbeam (1987) mentions R. minuscula subsp. violaciflora forma kariusiana with pale pink flowers, which may be what is shown in this image, which was added to the taxobox. However, The Plant List entry says that R. kariusiana is "unresolved". So I don't think that we should use this image without more evidence/support from reliable sources. Plants in cultivation are often under the wrong names. Peter coxhead (talk) 23:13, 22 April 2012 (UTC)
