Ariocarpus fissuratus, at Mariscal Mountain.



On the south west foothills of Mariscal Mountain the plants grow mostly burried on a basal bed of orange-brown limestone chips in the company of an interesting orange spined form of Echinomastus warnockii and Echinocreus species. Plants are mostly small about 4-5cm in diameter with well defined lateral grooves.
