I think there is a paragraph following figure 2 in the July GotM article which shouldn't be there as it refers to Avonia.

I had a couple of plants in flower last week, one unnamed plant has suffered from my poor cultivation recently but produced four flowers

Also open at the same time was a plant I got from Abbey Brook Cactus Echinopsis calochlora x calorubra

I presume Pseudolobivia qualifies as Echinopsis? Afraid this is a handheld shot in the staging since I never seem to get around to properly photographing it when really in full bloom, since it often has more flowers on than here. Not much of a looker out of flower, but then are most Echinopsis?

Echinopsis (Pseudolobivia) obrepanda ssp. purpurea.
