|D. laxa||Natural Hybrid||D. pauciflorula|
The parentage of this hybrid is less than certain. The hybrid plant in the photograph was grown in cultivation from cuttings collected in the vicinity of Wahiawa Bog, Kauai. Three individuals of this combination had a mean pollen stainability of 45%. The chromosome pairing configuration commonly observed during meiosis was 12II + 1M4 but there was some indication that 11II + 1M6 may be possible.
