Introduction

This unidentified Opuntia  was observed growing in southern New Mexico, near El Paso, TX, and in adjacent Mexico. This cactus grows with O. macrocentra and is similar to O. macrocentra, but it is more upright, has a different bloom period, and is a slightly taller prickly pear. These opuntias have a gray-blue color, and the spines are pale at their tips.
