Echinopsis brevispinulosus is ???

Post by Minime8484 » Mon Mar 11, 2013 8:45 pm

As mentioned in this post:
http://www.cactiguide.com/forum/viewtop ... =2&t=29030" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

I obtained a cutting of a plant called Echinopsis brevispinulosus...called the "Corn Cob Cactus".

That not being a valid name, I'm posting here in hopes it might be enough to suggest an ID - although, as Daiv said, flowers and distribution would help (I was told the flower is white and nocturnal).

Any ideas or info are appreciated!
