Cactus and Succulent Field Number Query

Description:

A form on this web site will take a cactus and succulent collector's field number (e.g. "KK 2005"), and return data on that plant if available. You can also enter a cactus or succulent species (e.g. Rebutia heliosa), and find field numbers corresponding to that species, a field number finder can be used instead.
A related
field collector service may be used to find out the identity of a given field collector in many cases even if this service can provide no details of his collections. The field collector service also may provide useful notes about a collector which may help to interpret the results of the search for a given field number.
