    Gavin what you describe is again a darker form of Den. cucullatum, here is the link to the real Den. aphyllum, it is green brown in color.

    THx Amey for the clarification. I did some research online and it appears Den Cuculatum used to be known as dend aphyllum or pieardii..hence the confusion...some of the books I had still list cuculatum as an aphyllum.
