Very quiet on here these days, it must be Winter in OZ ! Laughing I just got back from another US trip where again I saw some wonderful plants. Here's one to get you thinking - What am I ?

I reckon it's a Pediocactus peeblesianus v. fickeiseniae or a Toumeya papyracantha. Any chance of a closeup?

You're right with the first one Lachy ! It's my namesake, Navajoa "fickendansiae". Here's a closer look -

We did find some Toumeyas also...these guys are tough to see though...

Those are very cool little plants. Any idea how old those ones would be?

I'd guess that those would be about 4 years old or so as they were quite plump...

Here's a bigger gnarly old Toumeya we found..

I'd say HN is probably right on, but if not, I'd still bet on it being a Mamm sp.

Well kill the suspense Navajoa!! I think you guys are right and it is a pedio. That reminds me I should take a photo of the Knowltonii crest I have, it's quite a cool plant and by all accounts rare as rocking horse poo Smile Smile
