Hello everybody
today I need your help for another italian cactus lover.
Few day's ago he posted some photo of mammillaria in a forum, asking for an ID2 Mammillarias......Scrippsiana or Bocensis ? Immagi10

I think the Mammillaria is bocensis or scrippsiana, what do you think?


He told me that he bought a Mammillaria bocensis and post this photo of the plant,

Hi Lucio,
My feeling is that the first plant is bocensis rather than scrippsiana. The second one certainly isn't, imho, bocensis or scrippsiana, but a form of wagneriana, although it has more radials than is normal. But the top central spine is like a form called obscura, whch various "authorities" have either made synonomous with wagneriana or pettersonii, though I favour wagneriana if you have to lump it.
No doubt others will correct me if I have it wrong!
