Kaelkitty's Journal: JFC0489 Eriosyce (Neochilenia) taltalensis subsp. paucicostata (paposa)

Initial Notes:

Acquired from Dad as a second year seedling.and put into a 9cm pot in 1979 under the name Neochilenia paposa. Died in June 1980 from winter root rot. Replaced later in 1980 with another seedling. Died in the mid 1980s. This name came from Robert Field's 1977 seed list but has no traceable antecedents I can find except for one reference in French on cactipro.com which refers the name to Eriosyce paucicostata, which is itself now considered to be only a sub-species of E. taltalensis.
