Gymnosperms

Cupressus torulosa

Cupressus torulosa

Today we moved more than 300 boxes of gymnosperms up to the attic, giving us more space for the scanning group down in the Regnellian herberium! :) We don’t have many gymnosperms scanned (yet), but I found this Cupressus torulosa from the Indian part of Himalaya (it is distributed on limestone also in Vietnam and the Sichuan of China). Both Joytirmath but especially Badrinath are important religious cities. It is collected by the Schlagintweit brothers who were among the first Europeans to visit and explore parts of Himalaya and the Tibetan plateau (including the Kunlun mountains).
