I've just heard that Marcel Lecoufle has died.

In case people aren't sure who he was, he was best known for his
work with orchids. He had a secondary but still very significant
interest in Bromeliads. He had many other interests including CP,
and you're probably all familiar with his recent book (about 1
year old now).

For CP, his expertise was in my opinion limited to Nepenthes hybrids.

He had a really good nursery in the Paris which I guess will continue.

I don't know any more but as far as I can see, this is offician,
i.e. not a rumour.
