Botany picture #81: Ribes punctatum
Ribes punctatum (Glossulariaceae), Argentina, 2009. The genus Ribes is of course best known for the cultivated currants and gooseberries but it comprises more than a hundred species. Quite a few of them occur in southern South America, where this picture was taken during a conference trip.
