Ariocarpus et cetera

The special, smaller genera of Mexican cacti

Author: John Pilbeam and Bill Weightman

With the help of Weightman, Pilbeam authors yet another fantastic cactus book. Unlike Pilbeam's other single-genera books such as Mammillaria and Rebutia, the authors of Ariocarpus Etc. have included a unique collection of species from several genera. As the book's subtitle explains these are "The special, smaller genera of Mexican cacti". While this might leave a beginner collector scatching thier head as to what this means; those more seasoned will be able to fondly guess at which species are covered in this book. Seventeen genera are included here, which, aside from Ariocarpus, also includes Astrophytum, Aztekium, Geohintonia, Obregonia, Ortegocactus, Turbinicarpus and more. This book is beautifully illustrated and after a brief introduction, wastes no time in describing the various species. True to Pilbeam's highly organized style, the book logically follows a pattern for each species as follows: A general description of the genus including history of discovery and nomenclature, then the history and nomenclature for each species within followed by detailed plant descriptions, cultivation notes, and distribution data. Again, the photography is superb and nearly every one of the 138 pages of this book is graced with one or more large photos of impressive habitat plants sure to make any cactus collector drool. This book was published in 2006 by the British Cactus and Succulent Society and copies will not likely be available for long after that.
