Thats a beautiful mamm, I take it the 'nudum' refers to a lack of spines.

Another one I've never seen before, it just has the occasional longish spine? I like it!

CP, some forms are really really nude, some seem to throw one or two spines.

A perfect example of spirals in nature. Isn't it amazing how mathematics plays into just about every aspect of life?

My M. polythele surprised me when it flowered: I didn't know the distinguishing feature of this species is that it flowers either from the axils (like most of Mammis) or from the tubercles (this should the ancient way the first Mammillarias used to flower). The flowers from the tubercles are smaller than the others.

That's really interesting info Alessandro, I didn't know that!
Thanks.
S&B, my Mamm mystax does a similar trick with the occasional long spine.

I'm giving this one a new name: M. magnificus. Where can I get one? One Mamm. that has a totally impressive display.
