March 2017 - Something from your favourite genus. Which genus is most represented in your collection?

I can't decide on a favourite genus, but I do have a lot of Turbinicarpus and keep sowing new species/varieties/populations each year. This is one plant I didn't sow and not one of the best looking, but when it blooms it lights up the greenhouse.

Favourite genus. I guess I should not put in anything other than Eriosyce sensu Kattermann then, although a lot of other genera are close runners up. I don't think Eriosyce and the rest are closely related, so still use Neoporteria sensu Donald & Rowley (1966) for them.

Neoporteria floccosa

Neoporteria carrizalensis RMF 279

Neoporteria chilensis, red flowered form.

Fred Kattermann calls this pilispinus, but Roger Ferryman insists it is Neoporteria pulchellus.

The black spined Thelocephala Esmeralda AWC 454 (flowers in habitat vary from white/yellow to reddish)
