Comments

Gymnocalycium schickendantzii (F. A. C. Weber) Britton & Rose is the dominant species of the genus Gymnocalycium Pfeiffer ex Mittler in the south of the Chaco Biome. Its range (all of it in Argentina) starts from the Province of Salta in the north, and finishes at the Provinces of San Luis, including a part in the far north east of Mendoza in the south. Its populations have colonized areas of neighbouring ecosystems as part of the Espinal region, between the provinces of Córdoba and San Luis to the extreme southwest of its range of expansion, and parts of the Monte region in the provinces of San Luis, Mendoza, San Juan and La Rioja, in the southwest. For this species,  Charles (2009, 252-253), points out the genus’s unusual tendency to live in flat or sandy areas, often in the shade of bushes, away from rocks and hills. Our idea of G. schickendantzii includes Gymnocalycium delaetii (K. Schumann) Hosseus, for us only populations in the northern range of the species. The differences brought to the distinction of the second taxon at the subspecies level (Hunt et al. 2006, text: 133;  Charles 2009, 256), namely a flatter body and wider ribs divided into transverse furrows, are not so evident as to clearly distinguish the populations in habitat. As can be seen in the photographic material, even the type species can lead the distinctive characters of ssp. delaeti (A&M 402, photos 24-25; A&M 413, photos 30-33). (June 2013)
