In the afternoon of the 29th of April 2003 we found Dionysia mozaffarianii in flower just outsude the town of Semirom on vertical limestone cliffs. I had to climb my way up again to get closer to the plants. Only a few plants were growing on this spot, I think this species has a very restricted distribution because the surrounding rocks are of a different type. This species was also introduced into cultivation by the 1998 SLIZE expedition.
In the evening we went back to Kuh-e Pashmaku to stay for the night and wait for Harry and friends. Next day we waited until the afternoon for Harry, but nobody showed up. Of course we wondered what could have happened, somewhat later we received an email from Harry saying they had to change their schedule because of bad weather and because Chris got ill and had returned to the UK.
