We didn't break any rules, but it was getting a little close to that kind of discussion. Hehe.

Marshmellow's second pic is PC? It looks to me like very shallow V-notches are present.

That one does have tiny "v" shaped notches on them but It looks just like a PC to me. And the notches I'm talking about are more like the ones that look like seagulls.  where it's kind of like this ---v---, rather than this V.  To simplify, I still think it's a PC.

I finally found some non-PC pachanoi at home depot. I had to journey to 10 different stores all around the surrounding cities here.  Was stoked when I found these along with some matucana and other plants.  Here are some photos.

The first photo is of a PC in the center of the two non-pc pots.  The next three photos are the non-pc clone.  You can see the seagull marks/V notches above the areoles.  Otherwise it looks nearly identical.  I actually thought they were pc at first glance, but on further inspection realized they aren't and got very excited. Hehe.   The last photo is of a PC plant.  You can see the differences if you look closely.

Well seems I have been collecting the wrong cactus for many years. Not sure exactly what this means,  is there still of value to ethnobotanical just less value maybe? Not sure how to ask that one.  I ask because so many people have them and have have them for ethnobotanical uses ?

They make great grafting stock for the more "desirable" species. I have tons of PC pach and grafting is exactly what I use it for.

In March I grafted a bridgesii tip onto PC pach and the bridgesii is about 10" tall already.

I agree with HCC.  PC isn't useless. I grab any PC pachanoi that I find around here just for grafting.  I also have a few growing for ornamental purposes.

Looking at the skin color, serrated looking edge, short spines, and upturned areoles, I think you've got PC.

Kind of hard to ID from the pictures, but it looks like PC to me.
