Mariauxi was a chance find on eBay from a seller in Germany who I know imports from South America. Whether it is the real clone or not I don’t know. It wasn’t priced at the level I’d expect for a division but who knows? It may be a selfing or an outcross. I took a chance. It looks and grows like lueddemanniana and has no anthocyanin pigment so it could be right.
I agree that a close relationship with a South American company seems to be ideal for acquiring special clones.
Now that we appear to be coming towards the end of the pandemic maybe these sellers will start to come to shows in the USA. I would start to email them and ask!
