On the Cover : Gymnocalycium stenopleurum Originally labelled as Gymnocalycium mihanovichii, the flower colour tells us that this is actuallyG.stenopleurum. These two names have often been confused and the addition of G. freidrichii into the mix has not helped. Furthermore, G. mihanovichii var. friedrichii is not accepted as a synonym of G. stenopleurum by all students even though the plants look similar and grow sympatrically. Names apart. this cactus with its fierce spines and gorgeous flowers is well worth growing. (Photo: John Ellis)
