Bit of a tricky one, I would think it belongs to the T. schmiedicheanus species group and schwazii is a good a guess as any. Turbs are a difficult species to id in Australia because there are many hybrids.

Nice plant and graft lewis Smile I like it.

Hey HN,

I think you are definitely on the right track on it being part of the T.schmiedickeanus group.
I'm thinking it could perhaps be schwarzii or polaskii, or a hybrid.

Thanks.

Why Polaskii AmnesiA, is there a specific trait of Polaskii or are you just having an educated guess? I'm not very good with Turb IDs.

I just think it has form/lines that resemble polaskii in it's younger stages. but hard to take a guess from that photo. but the flower form is similar to polaskii i own and have seen in the past. however it is more a lean/guess than an answer... Thing is I have also seen polaskii with petals elongated as well as short and fat

As you suggested before it can be so hard with the hybrids we have here. very hard to obtain pure strains or turb seeds in local shores I check tomorrow and see if my small polaskii is in flower. if so i try post a pic.

After looking around and making some references it does show alot of similarities to T.Macrochele which is indeed part of T.schmiedickeanus group.
