These are listed as two separate varieties but they look the same to me. Is Brownii / Brauni just a "Brownie" spelling error that has continued on?

It was determined that they are different semps. Brownii has been sold for many years as braunii. http://www.semperhorst.de/Natu...
Actually the name should reflect that it is a species semp. Thanks for the heads up Patty.
And I do think there are more than one version out their. Hmmm, now what to do.
Brownie is an legitimate semp.

And to make things more confusing there is also a hirta braunii (but it doesn't look like those :P)
I tip my hat to you.

Coincidentally these two chicks of Brownii arrived during the week from the UK. I'll be keeping an eye on them to see how they turn out .
