Hi

Just got this one, came as sp Tehuacan.  Any ideas.  Just getting the newspaper off of it was scary!

is there one place that lists the current thinking on Hechtia and Dyckia species.  Or what is the last work re them?

thanks Mike

Silly Mike!  Good luck finding any current/recent summary work on either genus.  If you find one, let me know!

There are several species growing immediately around Tehuacan.  So that doesn't help much.  Oh yeah, and most of them are fairly large and vicious!

I found out this is grown at San Marcos Growers, not entirely sure mine is same but think so.  Apparently seed from Brian Kemble.  I asked him, and he said it was seed from a cultivated plant from Zapotitlan Salinas, which is 25 km SW of Tehuacan. It was said to grow in the area. 

Andy, what are species there??

So nothing more recent than Rauh book in terms of a compilation??

It might take even a more precise location than that.  There are probably at least 3 species there.  Some are in the H. podantha complex and then what I am calling/thinking of as H. sphaeroblasta.  Looking at the color pattern I would lean toward one in the podantha complex...but which one?  Would need the flower and as I keep saying, that might not even help get the name.

Oh, still a ways down the road.  Other projects are taking up lots of time.  Maybe this winter I can start sketching out a proposal to take to a publisher.  I'd rather make sure I have as correct content and good quality photos first.  But a good long term goal.
