This thread talked about a plant called M. schrottii n.n., which has now been investigated further by Thomas Linzen and Wolter ten Hoeve, resulting in its description as M.hermosana, a member of the Herrera's series.
The description is in Jarhgang 38 1/2014 issue of the AfM journal.
Mexico still has much to surprise us with.

Here are a few photos of M. hermosana in habitat. This hermosana taxon is the prettiest one, nice pectinate spination and pretty flowers (a few other hermosana taxa reside further north and have less appealing flowers). The name hermosana is derived from the Spanish hermosa = pretty, and the nearby location of Vista Hermosa, a village along the Zacarecas - Saltillo road.
