Genus: Mammillaria [ Cactaceae ]

Dictionary of Genus names

Mammillaria luethyi grafted on Opuntia compressa stock: a profusion of flowers
Mammillaria luethyi

The genus  name "Mammillaria" is derived from the Latin word “mammilla” incorrect spelling of “mamilla”; which means “breast, teat, nipple” and refers to the small tubercles (fleshy lumps or warts) covering the plant body. All cacti in this genus are rib-less
( The genus name implies: "bearing nipples (tubercles)")

(for example M. theresae - M. luethyi - M. albiflora)
