It is with very sad news to report the passing away of Lucio Mondolfo. It was Lucio who was instrumental in patiently working on and providing the incredible amount of data the comprises the Lexicon of Cacti Names software package. It is my wish to dedicate the Lexicon to the memory of Lucio and provide a complimentary copy of the software free of charge to all future CactusBase orders. My sincere condolences go out to Vittoria Mondolfo and her family.
