French Hoodia?


From Tela-Botanica it’s labeled as Hoodia alstonii, which has amazing little yellow flowers. Unfortunately it’s in french so I don’t know what the description says.

C’est Linné qui, en 1754, a créé le genre Cactus dans son ouvrage fondamental Genera plantarum. Or ce genre Cactus n’existe pas dans la nomenclature actuelle. Et pourtant, il est le type de la famille des Cactacées. Son apparition progressive dans la littérature botanique est intéressante, et deux explications sont proposées quant à son origine.

I suppose I could run it through a translation software package and find out, but what fun would that be?

OK, I ran it through the translation software and it must be a mistake. This photo of a Hoodia and this description of the Cactus Family in french do not go together. What now?
