creeping cactus ID

tropical_thought(San Francisco)December 31, 2011

I am looking for what would be called a cactus that grows on the ground. I thought it would be creeping, but when I looked that up, I only find creeping devil cactus, that is not the right plant. These are growing on the ground in the cactus green house. What is the name of the habit that indicated that it grows on the ground?

Here is a link that might be useful: link to photo of cactus in question

A few terms: Prostrate, Prone, Decumbent, Procumbent, Recumbent, Reclining, Flat, as well as your, Creeping.

Not sure, but thought Echinopsis thelegona might possibly be your cactus.

I think this one could be the creeping devil. The only sign posted was creeping. But, there were a number of creeping catci in the Cactarium.
