One problem was that Lemaire’s and Engelmann’s lists of species differed markedly. There were, in fact, few species in common. After typification had been deemed necessary for taxa of any rank, several authors set out to provide a type species for Coryphantha. , edn. 2, pp. 1–3, Scribner, New York. They proposed Mammillaria sulcata Engelmann. This fact had been overlooked by many authors, but was referred to by R. MOTTRAM in 1992. Generally, the lectotypification by BRITTON and MILLSPAUGH (1920) had been regarded as valid.
The thesis, which Friedrich postulated as a consequence of his analysis of the Protomammillaria areole type (Coryphantha clavata), can be applied to all areole types within the Mammillaria phylad (mainly the two genera Coryphantha and Mammillaria), but it needs to be extended, since it originates from observations of Coryphantha clavata only. The separation of peripheral spination from protected flowers positioned inside makes sense ecologically and the transfer of the flowers from the areole to the axils can be understood phylogenetically.
