As opposed to your previous post, this one is - clearly - Apparitionius transparentii 'Claude Rains'.

Tempting to think exotic but I'd go with the more common Downloadus incompletesia

Sorry, nope; it's a fine specimen of Uploadus interruptus. A close relative of the one you suggested, though.

Actually, I'm having doubts about it now. It could be Powerfailure wiresdownii var. sandyi?

Howdy 'gain!
I haves looked closely at my pics and the ones given and they are different. The pics given more like spikes while the ones on the tree I took the pic of are wider. Like flat fish scales w a point. Both not the same. Thanks. :)

The width of the leaves varies with the age of the tree and how shaded / sunny a position the individual shoot is in ;-)

Hi Resin! It looks like the one I saw received alot of sunlight. Ill be back that way next month. How old would u say it is? (To get those leaves?) I'm not a fan of sharp critters, but my Father was. Loved cactus so much he grew it from seeds!! :)

Hard to tell, they're slow growing though, I'd guess maybe 15-20 years?

Here's a young seedling one or two years old, and an older sapling with some mature trees behind.
