🌵 Type of Quiabentia

Named for Swiss naturalist Leo Zehntner (1864-1961). Britton & Rose (Cactaceae 4: 252): “We are indebted to Dr. Leo Zehntner, a very keen observer, for many fine specimens and much information regarding it. He has found it only on a small calcareous mountain near the city of Bom Jesus da Lapa, Brazil, but it has been transplanted to the Horto Florestal of Joazeiro where it is well established and where it flowered three years after being replanted.”
