Epithelantha Neomexicana Cactus
Epithelantha micromeris v. neomexicana, is an unpublished catalogue name (nomen nudum) used by some seeds collectors and succulent traders to indicate the naturally occurring New Mexican form of Epithelantha micromeris. It is very similar to the type species and not readily distinguishable, if not for the geographical provenance. It is another little white beauty with very small radial spines, combed and projected toward the apex and all spring produces many tiny cream/pink flower. This taxon is self-fertile. It produces viable seeds even without extra pollination.
