Haworthia maraisii

H. maraisii, Felix Unite

Haworthia maraisii V. Poelln.

maraisii: for W.R.B. Marais

H. maraisii is smaller, slowly proliferous and very dark green species. Leaves are opaque, usually retused, scabrid with small raised tubercles. Margins and keel sometimes with small spines. It was previously under magnifica, but Bayer has separated it. Bayer is calling all this plants now "mirabilis". I was waiting quite a long time with publishing this article, because I wanted to understand better to this element. But more populations I have see, the more I´m confused. So I will call all this plants H. maraisii and will see what future brings. Var. meringii and notabilis will be discussed in separeted articles. Breuer is using name schuldtiana, I agree with Bayer and keep them as a synonym to marasii.

Distribution map
H. maraisii grows from Heidelberg in the East, Robertson in the West and up to Bredasdorp in the South. It is quite common in this area. The type locality is at Stormsvlei, where the plants are much more robust than in other localities. Some forms from Robertson area are similar to H. pubescens, near Bonnievale it integrates to  H. meiringii and H. heidelbergensis. Around Potberg grows form of marasii / floribunda, which were described by Hayashi as H. henda. At Napier and all the way North to Stormsvlei are growing more robust forms, possibly some kinds of nature hybrids with H. mirabilis or H. triebneriana.
