It is indeed nice to see an actual name on one of these. :) I finally figured out how to get K in this town and will start working through past observations after I can stop being sick…

A. contigua is the only option according to Sonoran Flora

Other K- C- species are either lobed around margin, have whitish pruina, or have elevated or subsquamulose areoles. So rare we get to put an actual species name on one of these beauties!
