Ariocarpus Species
  home [ Cultivars ]  


The species listing is based on Anderson & Fitz Maurice's excellent 1997 revision of the genus in Haseltonia Vol. 5, since this revision several new taxa have been published by J Halda in association with L Horacek & P.Panarotto,, these are discussed alongside their parent taxa, with the exception of Ariocarpus confusus which is given a separate page, (The Aramberri Enigma)  as it is one of the most distinctive variants in the A. retusus / trigonus complex. .J. Halda has recently published his revision of the genus, 'A  New System of the genus Ariocarpus Scheidweiler' in Acta Musei Richnoviensis 5(1) 1998. A listing of other names in circulation today is also given, as many of these names whilst of little botanical value do serve to differentiate distinct ecotypes. A complete listing of all names published as Ariocarpus or Anhalonium species, along with publication data is also available.
