Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing I think I want to see the next one named 'shamfunckii '. Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing Wonder how they will explain S. shamfunckii. Big Grin
Here is some information on the naming of this semp. Shrug!
As S. x pseudofunckii (also known as 'Pseudofunckii'), hybrids of S. montanum x arachnoideum: Hermann Müssel (1977)

Will the real S. funckii please show yourself.
My all time favorite photo of S. funckii.

When tabby showed me that photo, I knew I had to have that semp. And I haven't regretted buying it.
