Dr. Roland Fischer comments,

Leopold Sevcik has done some stunning crosses with P. oerstedii aff.porphyretica, but the plant was the source of the terrible virus infection in his collection. Many crosses from Leopold Sevcik are infected with the most terrible passiflora virus that I have ever seen, e.g. P.’Sharka’. I do not collect this ill plant any more and I keep aff. porphyretica in isolation and take care!
