Re: Contact details for William's Cacti for BEF pots

Phone or letter are probably your best bet if you can't visit the nursery. The website is still down, so I assume they are still on emergency power.

Re: Where to look for info. on endemic c&s species?

As Davey wrote, easiest with the Cactaceae. Once you have some possibles you can check for each species or genus with POWO: https://powo.science.kew.org/taxon/urn:lsid:ipni.org:names:30000028-2 I may be annoying cactus lovers by calling them areolate purslanes in future :twisted: Notes on delimitati...
