    Notes

    Blum & Breslin (2018) described the new new subspcies E. arizonicus subsp. oldachiorum. The authors mention that this new taxon has a shorter seed length, but there are no statistical tests or any other evidence to support this taxon as distinct. The number of ribs and spines, as well as the spine length are shared with the typical E. arizonicus.A
