Since I cannot write anywhere else for this question, will just write here Smile

Could somebody help me ID this weird blueish guy with purple spines?




Havent seen this one in the area before, and the body remins the usual Echinopsis/Trichocereus type.

Myrtillocactus geometrizans 

It'll give delicious berries. Not active.

Thanks! Will wait for those berries Very happy.

And this one?


Looks like pachanoi, but a bit weird, has a different color (more saturated/dark green) and slightly different form of ribs to the ones I already have.

Trichocereus Pachanoi by that photo.

It could be a scoplicola/ pachanoi hybrid. I'd be more inclined to say pachanoi.

There are some columnar Echinocereus species that are glossy like that but yours looks as though it has some mechanical damage so maybe it's glossy from rubbing against packaging or overhanging leaves or something? But the small white areoles also look like those on a couple of my columnar Echinocereus which makes me interested to see how it might look after having grown several inches. The main thing being it's way glossier than your usual Trichocereus therefore clearing up any backstory on that would be most helpful.

I'm not sure on the id, though those are really beautiful. Thumbs up

Nope, haven´t cleaned it with anything (although can´t say anything about the previous owner), and it only has some little old scar in one of the arms. As to the species, i was told that it was a Bolivian Echinocereus, and I was expecting it to be a Brigesii when I unpacked it, I even checked if the spines were cut but found out that they were just really small (a couple mm), so I decided to ask here fearing that it would be some PC variant.

After searching around I found this https://trichocereus.net...reus-pachanoi-bolivia/. Which shows some pictures of similarly glossy cacti. So its probably some Pachanoi cousin from the Southern Andes that isnt catalogued as a separate specie/variant yet.

Will probably have to wait for it to grow a bit to try out how potent it is, because I haven´t found anything related to them.

Is this a typo? Or were you really told that it was an Echinocereus? The bridgesii which you're likely to be interested in would be Trichocereus bridgesii, also known as Echinopsis lageniformis - not to be confused with Echinopsis bridgesii which is a different species.

A true(?) Echinocereus bridgesii is a very different-looking plant compared to the one which you have:

but given the dearth of information on this binomial it appears to be a bunch of misattributions of a nomen nudum.

Here's the Echinocereus I was thinking of: https://llifle.com/Encyc...70/Echinocereus_gentryi
