This Genus was first described in 1929 by Boedeker. Until 1992 there was considered to be only one species of this genus, until the discovery of A. hintonii.

A sacred plant to many Mexican tribes. Due to over harvesting and habitat destruction this Cactus is now, sadly almost extinct in the wild. A small 2 cm plant with 9 - 11 ribs and convolutions, also bearing whitish pink flowers. The plant appears similar in appearance to the styles of certain Aztec sculpture due to its form. This is a very slow growing cactus taking up to two years just to reach 3 mm in diameter. Native to Nuevo Leon, Mexico.

Needs course sandy soil, and to be kept above 50 degrees. Should be grown in full sun.
