Ariocarpus retusus at this site has much in common with the long tubercled plants found further to the west at Entronque Huizache. the plants reach a large size and are very large flowered, the closest other population we have observed to these plants is LRM276 at Pressa de Guadalupe, which is very different in appearance being a typical short tubercled 'furfuraceus' type.
