I have seen a few very young leaves of impressus with hairs. It is a
juvenile aspect that is very erratically spread over a few east African
species and then within these species. Even the red spots may be nothing
more than a juvenile character and disappear with age. That doesn't rule out
that the plants are not really impressus but that will only become apparent
when they flower.......
