Dr. Richard (Dick) Haas of California St. Univ., Fresno spent time in
Somalia 20 yrs. ago looking for and finding Nothos. for the World Health
Org. (WHO). The goal was mosquito control as a disease preventative. He
found a couple of then-undescribed Nothos., but I don't know if they have
been described yet. He brought back N. patrizii, which is still in
circulation in the hobby.
