Caption: Mammillaria bombycina. View of the flowering cactus Mammillaria bombycina. The genus Mammilaria is one of the largest in the cactus family containing about 200 species. Mammillaria differ from other cacti by having their mammillae (nipple shaped protrusions) distributed all over their surface rather than in a ribbed arrangement. The tips of the mammillae have structures known as areoles from which the bristles of the cactus emerge. In Mammillaria species, flowers develop from hollows between the mammillae known as axils. These cacti are found distributed throughout central and northern Mexico and the south-western USA.
