Aylostera narvaecensis Cárdenas

This distinctive and beautiful plant, first described in 1971, is sometimes seen under the names Rebutia narvaecensis or Rebutia espinosae. But it is an Aylostera, not a Rebutia. Note that Mosti et al. (2011) published the name with a spelling mistake and an incorrect ending, Aylostera narvacense. The two-tone pale pink flowers and short, very neatly arranged spination make it a very popular plant.
