The Lobivia are South Americans cacti (Argentina, Bolivia, Peru) appreciated by the collectors for the bright bloom. The most recent monograph about the Lobivia genus is "Lobivia 85" by W.Rausch and currently it results difficult to find. Therefore I think to make pleasant thing to cacti collectors by means of this photographic harvest of Lobivia plants cultivated mainly from habitat-collected Walter Rausch's seeds.

I have neither inserted the group of the "Mediolobivia" because in a recent job (Cactus&Co. vol.III-n.4, pag.187) S.Mosti has considered them as Digitorebutia, nor that of the Acanthocalycium.

I took the following photos during December 1999, and plants were in vegetative stasis, therefore plants in the photoes have not flowers, but I hope they will be helpful for everyone who want to try to classify his own plants. I hope in the future to be able to insert in these www-pages the photos of the flowers. I must acknowledge prof. Leonardo Gavazzi who made his collection of Lobivia available to me.
