Stelis-pusilla-2018-11-29***Confirmed as Stelis majorella, not Stelis pusilla (May 2020); based on drawings of S. pusilla and S. majorella, one of the distinguishing characteristics between the two is that S. majorella is hirsute along the sepal margins and S. pusilla is glabrous on the sepal margins; with a close match to available drawings, translucent green color and form, and hirsute margins on the sepals this plant more closely matches S. majorella than S. pusilla.***
