No, that would be a really bad place to start - it's a convenience for keeping similarly showworthy plants together (I oversimplify). Far better to look at (and compare, since there are plenty of differences in approach) two ...

Re: Aylostera question

Seems to be a made up name. See http://www.rebutia.sk/select/names/nigrispina_s.htm Longish spine with black tips put me in mind of A. fiebrigii, though.

Odd Tunilla flower

No, it's not another post about T. chilensis with stigma bits on the anthers but a fan-shaped bud I noticed a while ago on an otherwise nondescript plant. Cristate-ish flowers are something I see from time to time.

C. stillowiana is a bit too young to flower yet, but for completeness:

Re: Chamaecereus

A couple of forms of C. schreiteri have been in flower, though I only caught this first one as it was going a bit raggedy. Under Echinopsis, the NCL had it as a subspecies of E. saltensis but in Chamaecereus the only combination is at species level.

Re: Chamaecereus

Another C. saltensis that didn't want to flower on Sunday was this one, 'zapallarensis' TB382.1.
