Initial Notes:Acquired in a 8cm pot in 1979 as Copiapoa multicolor. Backeberg lists this name as a nomen nudum in Die Kakteen-lexicon in 1966 noting that the plant was believed to have originated with Ritter, BUT there is also KK 1391 from Karel Kníže's collections, with this name potentially linked as a synonym for C. megarhiza v. unknown?. Died in July 1981 from root rot.
