Catalogue of Life doesn't recognize this name
I came upon this entry as I was searching for Mammillaria crocidata for loading a picture.
problem is that Catalogue of Life doesn't recognize that one either, even not as a synonym..
This is the cactus from the botanical garden..

|If it's an old synonym, it often won't be listed in the Catalogue of Life. The Plant List calls it a synonym of Mammillaria polythele.|
We do have an entry for that one because it is recognized as an accepted species name by the CoL
Mammillaria (Mammillaria polythele)
We also have an entry for Neomammillaria crodidata:
Some of our entries were copied from The Plant List in the early days of our database, but I'm not certain that these species still exist. The CoL does list a few Neomammillaria species, but only as synonyms of Mammillaria species. The genus may no longer exist.
