Hi,

we visited some hills between Todos Santos and Cabo San Lucas close to the sea in february. We found M.schumannii and M.armillata. But there was another mammillaria and I have no idea what it is. I tend to M.verhaertiana but I'm really unshure. Any suggestions ? Thanks for your help South of Todos Santos Icon_biggrin

Hi Robby,
It sounds like you had a great time in Baja. It is one place that is on my list of places to visit, but not this year!
I don't immediately recognise the plant, but suspect that you could be right with M. phitauiana (verhaertiana) thoiugh my plants in culuvation of this species grow rather slimmer. But that could just be the difference in light levels! It's a shame it wasn't in flower, as that could have been the clincher.

Hi Chris,

I see, you had a wonderful trip to mexico too. Wonderful fotos you show us here!

I agree with you, that M.phitauiana should grow rather slimmer. We found some plants in the mountains of the Sierra de la Laguna, which looks more like M.phitauiana (foto).
