Extra Info:
Sulcorebutia tarabucoensis is a species that is very widespread throughout the greater area of Tarabuco. Nobody can really tell where there is the borderline to other species like S. canigueralii or where S. tarabucoensis v. tarabucoensis ends and one of the other subspecies or varieties start. It is often a matter of personal opinion if one considers a certain population to belong to one of the sub-categories or to the type. There has also been many discussions if other species (S. rauschii, pasopayana) growing in the same area should be included in S. tarabucoensis. There are remarkably few elaborate publications about this species.
