Etymology

Greek pseudo– β€˜false, appearing to be’ + macrochele. For the similarity to Strombocactus macrochele (= Turbinicarpus schmiedickeanus subsp. macrochele). Backeberg misspelled the epithet pseudomacrohele and that of Strombocactus macrochele as macrohele or macrothele, but the original spelling of the latter epithet was macrochele (Greek makros β€˜long’ + Greek chΔ“lΔ“ ‘claw’, for the long claw-like spines).
