Cover illustration: There's no doubt about it:Euphorbia piscidermis, from Ethiopia, is one of the most remarkable of succulents. When it is not in flower, no one would suspect it of being a euphorbia. Its globose stems are closely shingled with scale-like appendages (the specific name means "fish-skinned"), such scales being otherwise unknown in the genus. It is a difficult species to grow on its own roots and is usually grafted, a process that encourages such proliferousness as shown on our cover. That plant was exhibited by Frank Horwood in the 1986 CSSA show, where it was beautifully photographed by John N. Trager.
