Event Description:Event Summary:
Learn about black lace cactus.

Echinocereus fitchii subsp. albertii, also known as Echinocereus reichenbachii var. albertii, is a south Texas endemic. The plant, commonly called black lace cactus, is listed as a federally and state endangered species.

The objectives of this study are to

  1. survey populations of black lace cactus to determine current occurrence status,
  2. examine habitat and morphological features of black lace cactus across occurrences, and
  3. examine the genetics of the Ereichenbachii-fitchii species complex to decipher the closest evolutionary relatives of black lace cactus.
