Description

In June 2021, it was unexpectedly rediscovered by the second author Kohei Yamana in a coniferous plantation in Sanda City, Hyogo Prefecture. A comparison of two closely related species of fairy lantern: Thismia kobensis (A) and Thismia huangii (B), and their stigma lobes (B) and (D), respectively. Overall, the rediscovery of the Thismia kobensis after three decades has significantly advanced our understanding of fairy lanterns. As the northernmost species of Asian fairy lantern found so far, it also provides crucial insight into the biogeography and evolutionary history of fairy lanterns as a whole. The paper also includes information on conservation measures to help protect these rare plants from human activities. The presence of the mainly tropical genus Thismia in temperate North America remains a mystery, especially since the species considered to be its closest relative, Thismia rodwayi, is found in Australia and New Zealand. This strange distribution pattern continues to puzzle botanists.

Credit: Kenji Suetsugu (A–B), Tian-Chuan Hsu (C) and Tsung-Hsin Hsieh (D) The researchers provided an updated description of Thismia kobensis to flesh out the original description that was based on an incomplete museum specimen . Their close examination highlighted how Thismia kobensis differs from the similar species Thismia huangii. The rediscovered species can be distinguished by its short and wide ring as well as the many short hairs on its stigma (Fig. 2). Based on their analysis of various characteristics, the researchers determined that Thismia kobensis is a distinct species, with unique characteristics and evolutionary history. The string lights with 20 decorations are handcrafted. With their sequin crown, soft pink hair, and floaty white dresses, see how they shine and twinkle with the light! Fantastic for gifts, parties, or simply for decoration around the home, they will make anything they are wrapped around look absolutely stunning! Each of the 20 lights along the string is surrounded by a string measuring 7cm tall. Stretched out the CE-approved light string has 3m of lights with approx. 15cm spacing between decorations. For versatility, the strings are transparent and have a 2m lead between the CE-approved 3 pin UK plug and the first decoration. The total string length including lights and lead is 5m. Can be used worldwide, with an adapter. The custom-toned warm white LED light strings, give a gorgeous luminescence, softer than more readily available LED lights. Pretty and practical their LEDs use up to 90% less electricity than filament bulbs. One such species, Thismia kobensis was originally discovered in Kobe City, Japan in 1992. Unfortunately, its habitat was destroyed by an industrial complex and it was subsequently presumed extinct. After more than 30 years, Professor Kenji Suetsugu and his colleagues report its rediscovery in Sanda City, located approximately 30 km away. This unexpected find and subsequent investigations have shed new light on this remarkable genus and its evolutionary history.Two years ago, Imade a set of Halloween and Christmas lanterns, and have since had readers asking questions and offering their own suggestions on how else they can be made. In response,I decided towrite another tutorialwith a new approach tomaking the lanterns. Using my old designs didn’t seem interesting, so I created a new set of silhouettes – joyful fairies dancing around the light! I thought I may just add this set to the room of my daughter Faye who is already a happy possessor of a fairy tree house.

One of the main difficulties in obtaining new data is the covert nature of the plant: although brightly coloured, it is often covered by litterfall, and non-specific botanical surveys have a high probability of missing it. Improved surveys, however, have been increasingly successful in detecting Thismia rodwayi, and the amount of data is growing. [5] The newly discovered location of Thismia kobensis makes it the northernmost known Asian fairy lantern species. This discovery may offer new insights into the systematic affinity and biogeography of the mysterious fairy lantern, Thismia americana, which was originally thought to be related to some species in Australia and New Zealand. The small number of known individuals of this species has put it under Schedule 5 (Rare) of the Tasmanian Threatened Species Protection Act 1995. However, Thismia rodwayi is not considered threatened by the International Union for Conservation of Nature ( IUCN).The research has been described in a new study in Phytotaxa.

Credit: Photographed by Kenji Suetsugu Thismia rodwayi is, as botanist Mark Wapstra puts it, 'aptly described' by its common name: fairy lantern. [4] It is a very small flower, only visible as an orange and red obovate floral tube of 10 to 18mm in length. This flower is surmounted by six perianth lobes: three inner lobes curving inward, and three outer ones spreading outward. [3] They thrive underground, with their vibrant flowers emerging from the soil, sometimes giving them the appearance of mushrooms. Approximately 90 species of Thismia have been discovered, but many are only known from their place of origin and some may have already gone extinct.

(Burmanniaceae) in Tasmanian forests". Tasmanian Naturalist. 127: 2–18. Thismia's preferred habitats, which tend to be tropical rainforests, are facing global decline. Little is known about the elusive plants, and a significant number of the roughly 90 identified species have been lost, some for decades, after their initial discoveries. Because of the anecdotal occurrence data concerning this plant, Thismia rodwayi is not listed by the IUCN. It is, however, listed on Schedule 5 (Rare) of the Tasmanian Threatened Species Protection Act 1995 under criterion B (species subject to stochastic risk of endangerment because of naturally small population sizes). [3] Thismia rodwayi's life cycle is still very poorly understood. [1] As it usually appears in patches of closely situated individuals, it is generally accepted that both pollen and seeds are transported only short distances, which could explain why the plant occurs in only a fraction of its potential habitat.

The elusive species has now been found approximately 30 kilometres away in Sanda City, Hyogo Prefecture, shedding new light on the evolutionary history of this remarkable genus.Each individual plant usually produces only one flower per bloom cycle, occasionally two; plants can be found in groups of 2 to 5 (and up to 12) in an area of less than 1 m 2. [1] Thismia rodwayi in bud. Autecology [ edit ] Fairy lanterns are rare and only grow in specific places. They live underground with their colorful flowers rising above the soil, which can sometimes make them look like mushrooms. Around 90 species of Thismia have been found, but many are only known from their original discovery location, and some have likely become extinct. Thismia rodwayi occurs in wet eucalyptus forests, mainly Eucalyptus obliqua, E. regnans, E. delegatensis and E. viminalis, between 100 and 650 m above sea level. [1] The potential habitat in Tasmania is estimated with the RFA ( Regional Forest Agreement), such as "tall E. obliqua forest" (OT) or "wet E. viminalis forest" (VW). [4] As occurrence data for the species are sparse, the potential habitat is much more widespread than the flower itself.
