Echinocereus coccineus

This is a common species of the American South-West, also known as Claret Cap cactus. This long-spinned form is common at higher elevations in the area from Zion National Park to Kaibab Plateau, were it sometimes called E. toroweapensis. At even higher elevation this species is replaced by somewhat similarly looking Eastern form of E. mojavensis.
