Només he vist mai les metzines... només el nigrum. Suposo que en aquesta el fruit és encara inmadur i sembla una carbasseta je.
Bons colores i llum amb magnífics detalls de les puntxes. Bona profunditat. Conjunt de colors tb preciós.

Un excellent treball Ferran.

Hola Ferran,
me llamó la atención esta planta. Vi una muy parecida en las yungas de Salta, pero era rastrera y tenía unas espinas muy grandes. Si rescato alguna foto buena te la envio; realmente nadie sabia bien qué era.
Muy buena captura, como siempre, logras un detalle excelente que ayudan a la clasificación.gracias x compartir estas bellezas.
Saludos y buen comienzo del invierno!
Brenda
