D. knudsenii x laxa (n = 14) Artificial Hybrid K. bolanderi (n = 6)

This striking hybrid was produced by crossing a fertile interspecific Dubautia hybrid with the mainland genus Kyhosia.  Chromosome pairing in the resulting intergeneric hybrid was very low.  Consequently, the combination was sterile at the diploid level.  For additional details see Amer. J. Bot. 83:653-660.
