Great idea!

You can copy and paste the list to excell, seperate the numbers and names. Than you are able to look for a single genus, like Aloe, Pachypodium and so on!

Thank You!

I too do like the cacti and succulent identification guide. I did download the alphabetical listing and saved all the digital color image plates of the corresponding plants. It is neat, to just roll the wheel on the mouse and have the good quality images enlarged, in order to see detailed characteristics of the plants. Eliestephane and Grimm, thank you for posting this information.

This is great! Thanks for taking the time to put it together. I think ive managed to identify one of my 3 grown cacti using it (the rest are just seedlings). 😁

Wow, what a fantastic resource you've produced for those collectors, like me, who occasionally buy unnamed specimens from various non-specialist sources, and wish to identify what they've bought! I've managed to at least narrow down the identity of many of my unnamed ones using your photos.

Many times I've trawled through the illustrations in Daiv's website, The New Cactus Lexicon and those in Backeberg's Cactus Lexicon, often finding nothing resembling what I've purchased (not a criticism, as I know positively identifying cacti is a highly complex process, not least given the fact that what we buy is typically relatively young and that forms can change with age, to say nothing of the natural variation that occurs within species, and that even only seed characteristics can define a species!).

That old names are often given is not a problem now, as it is easy to cross reference via cactiguide.com or even a simple online search.

So a BIG Thankyou for the time and effort you've gone to!

Thanks for posting this. After many years of collecting, there are still so many common cacti I don't know!

What a fantastic post! I can narrow my small collection's IDs down before posting for more details. Thank you.

I have done a word document with the names underneath the relevant picture to allow easier linking between the two. However, there are a few partial names in the list and a missing ID too, so if anyone can let me know from the list at the top of the page in the first post I'll add to the word document. Then if anyone lets me know how to upload it I'll put it on here.
Best,
Rich
