Mammillaria knippeliana
Hunt expresses some doubts about this species, and in successive issues of his Postscripts, he reduces it from an accepted species to a state of limbo, as provisionally accepted.
The doubts spring from the originally described plant having no reported source, and according to Hunt, calling for "spines at first 6, the lowest or also the uppermost longest, to 3cm, all spines spreading, acicular, white with blood-red or brown tip later up to 6 weaker spines of the same colour developing. flowers 15 by 10mm, outer segments red with yellow margins inner straw yellow with red midstripe, innermost straw yellow with red tip, stigmas pale green".
The name has for some time now been applied to plants coming from the state of Morelos, near Cuernavaca. but as Hunt says, "where are the 3cm long spines, the subsidiary spines, the 13 and 21 rib spirals or the red striped perianth segments" of the original description? certainly they are not present on plants currently in circulation under this name. it remains a mistery.
