I would have assumed the Mammillaria hybrid was heyderi. Anyway, looks a lot like those near the Pima-Cochise County line.


Does M heyderi have a big root? I've got one but haven't dug it up since it was a seedling.

A few more pictures from yesterday...

I thought I posted this question earlier, but I guess I didn't. Greg, I don't think heyderi grows as far west as the Pima County line. heyderi bullingtoniana occurs sporadically in Cochise County east of Douglas and supposedly in Tombstone. everything west of this area is macdougalii, I think. Could be wrong.

Isn't macdougalii a ssp. of heyderi? The hybrid doesn't resemble macdougalii?

macdougalii and heyderi are separate in the latest treatment. (FNA). Hard to keep track of. These forms have a long history of names and confusion.

The hybrid does indeed bear some resemblance to heyderi, to me, but not so much macdougalii. Just my .02.

This is the Mammillaria I speak of--

So, macdougalii then? Tim-sorry. I'm not trying to hijack your thread, I just want to get some clarification on this one.

thanks for allowing this little detour Tim. That plant does indeed look like Mammillaria heyderi bullingtoniana, to me.

Sorry Tim.

To compare Mammillaria macdougalii Pima County, east of Tucson. The yellowish flowers are typical for this species.
More details thereof are at my website.

Tim's "hybrid" have also some similarity to Mammillaria roseoalba. It have also a taproot.

Great looking plants! I always love the Mammillaria habitat pictures. Especially big ones!

I got the hybrid from Miles. He doesn't have it listed anymore, so I can't find any more info on it. I thought he had some location info in the original listing.
