Product information

Introduction

Ariocarpus bravoanus is known only from a small area within the state of San Luis Potosí. It is the most recently described species of the genus having been discovered by Hector Hernández of UNAM whilst collecting cacti for a herbarium project. The plant was discovered accidentally in soil removed whilst extracting a specimen of a larger species. A. bravoanus is particularly interesting as it represents a link between the former subgenera Ariocarpus and Roseocactus. The new species was named in honour of Dra Helia Bravo, who contributed much to the study of the Mexican Cactaceae.
