|🌵 Author(s)||Alexander Doweld|
|🌵 Type||Kadenicarpus pseudomacrochele|
Kaden + Greek karpos ‘fruit’. Named for Russian botanist and carpologist Nikolai N. Kaden. Roy Mottram (Cactician 4. 2014) renders his name “H. H. Kadena” based on a misreading of the Russian “Н. Н. Кадена” (-a is a case ending).
The compound should arguably be Kadenocarpus, but perhaps Doweld changed the connecting vowel to i to be consistent with Turbinicarpus or to avoid confusion with Adenocarpus (Fabaceae). It is in any case not correctable.#Genus accepted in POWO
