Mammillaria crinita - a new look at old names

, : Mammillaria crinita - a new look at old names. Cactus and Succulent Journal 69(5): 249-258

The 5 earliest names which appear applicable to plants of Mammillaria, M. wildii Group, are M. crinita, M. glochidiata, M. criniformis, M. wildii and M. schelbasii. The original descriptions corresponding to these taxa were compared with the characteristics of similar plants growing today in what appear to be the same areas in Mexico in which the original plants were found.

Chromosome numbers are reported for diploid, tetraploid and hexaploid populations of M. prolifera and for 16 other species. Variations in size and exine structure are recorded for mature pollen grains. [For earlier work see HcA 49, 6037.].
