Solanum umtuma

A new species of Solanum (Solanaceae) from South Africa related to the cultivated eggplant got published today (paper by [personal profile] doseybat and her former boss). It is the first electronically published plant species description and the first to be published in English. More significantly, it is the first scientific paper that I'm in the acknowledgements of. (I counted the stellate hairs and assigned a tentative seperation into groups).
