Clumping, spiny cactus with blunt, grooved tubercles and white or cream flowers from the southern Chihuahuan Desert. 1-6 hooked central spines; 7-9 radial spines. Flowers are self pollinating. From Tamaulipas, San Luis Potosí, and Nuevo León, Mexico.

Formerly known as Cumarinia odorata, but (for now) lumped with Coryphantha.
