This plant was described by L.B.Smith in 1950
Pictures taken by Dr. Vilson Müeller.
Papanduva Peak is In Paraná southeast, some 64 km away from where I live.
It is close to Araçatuva and Anhangava peaks.
Temperatures can drop to -11°C during some winter nights frost,
snow and icicle are common there.
These plants here present shorter and wider leaves and also bigger spines
they well may be a different species. All plants are rubra.
