THIS PLANT IS ON C.I.T.E.S. AND CANNOT BE EXPORTED
From Madagascar on the banks of the River Ambongo, it is a distinctly different plant related, apparently, only to P. decaryi. Forming a swollen base and slender, very spiny trunk with few branches in the crown, narrow green leaves with a pale mid-vein. The spines are long and paired and the plant superficially resembles a P. lameri when young. Flowers are broad and flat, snow white and resemble those of P. decaryi. Still rare in collections.
