BRYONET

Here is a picture of Dawsonia superba together with people for scale, as
described along the Silau Silau trail, Mt Kinabalu, Sabah, taken in 1995.

It is not a posed picture I'm afraid, taken very much on the hoof (1/6"
wide open), but it does give a good impression of what it really looks
like in the forest. I have plenty of close-ups which are technically
better but lack people for scale. The height of 850 mm was measured from
a plant in this patch, or nearby. Close-up shots show that the plants
really were free-standing, unlike as in the photograph at:
