Hi, this plant is not E. triglochdiatus for one, the flower color is wrong, but the flower shape is also not correct. This looks a lot like E. engelmannii, but there are several others that this could be.

Sorry about that. That was the label when it was planted, but we know how many times things are not identified correctly. If there is a parent plant entry it could be moved there until we are sure what it is.

There is, but it does not show up when I try to submit a proposal to move it. Just about one page out of the 4 pages of Echinocerei in the database show up as options.

I noticed that. I think I found it on my second try, so let's see if it makes it. I never looked at all the photos, or I would have noticed my flowers were the wrong color.

I use a shortcut instead of typing the name and looking through all of the possibilities. Find the generic page for Echinocereus alphabetically, scroll down to find the plant ID number (646130 in this case), and type the number into the box instead of the name of the plant.

Of course, I think I read about that once before and forgot about it. I'll try to remember that, Zuzu.
Thank you, I see you moved it.

So you've decided that it's E. cinerascens?

Ok, now I'm confused. I'm not sure if it is. I thought that was the parent plant listing. Sorry if I've made another mistake.

I'll move it to the generic entry. Smiling

Thanks, where is it? That was the only one that looked like it to me.
Now I see it, but I swear it wasn't there the last 4 times I looked. Invisible parent entries. Couldn't they all be at the beginning of the Echinocereus list?

It's this one, with just the name of the genus and no species.

Thanks, would it be possible to have the parent entry first in the Echinocereus list?

If you mean the search results list for moving an image, you can ask @dave about that. I don't know how much programming that would entail.

The easiest way that doesn't involve programming is to type echinocereus into the database search box.

http://garden.org/plants/search/text.php?q=echinocereus&butt...

Then click on "View all plants in the genus Echinocereus." That will put all of the entries in alphabetical order, with the generic entry at the top of the list:

Ok, I just saw that you have to click on the "View all plants in the genus Echinocereus" I was just looking at the list without clicking on that. In that, the parent entry was midway in the list. Having it up front is best and it appears that is the way it is if you know what to do!
