A Brazilian species who’s name has been confused for some years and has been most often called carcharodon ‘Rubra’, amongst others. Part of the complex containing silvomontana and pernambucana and perhaps even more distantly; carcharodon, it is a beautiful and desirable plant for collectors. Widely used in hybrids (as carcharodon ‘Rubra’), it is very large with fairly wide leaves in an open rosette to about 3 feet across. The leaves are glossy, orangish-green with very large spines on the margins. The inflorescence is large and bears white flowers. Still an uncommon species in cultivation.
