I'm hoping for this to be a thread, that people can post pics of unidentified cacti, so that we can get a lot of pictures in one place. I have several pictures that I will be uploading in the next couple hours to get this started right.

Blue Myrtel cactus or Myrtillocactus geometrizans, not bridgesii.

Not peruvianus. Peruvianus has creame colored areoles fading to a tan. It has Reddish spines when new to fading to a amber/tan with age.

What you have there is Trichocereus cuzcoensis

Now I am a bit confused. The newer spines on mine are red/brown, not yellow like the cuzco in the pic. Thanks for your input Irishlion, I've gotta read up on id stuff more :confused:

Its possible that that is a macrogonus but I don't think so
here is a pic of my macrogonus tell me if this looks like what you have

macro 1.jpg

or

macro 2.JPG

macro 3.JPG

macro 4.JPG

Those are all trichocereus macrogonus, all the same plant actually.
Looking at my pics I have, It could be neither torch nor cuz thats its infact a hybrid of them both but, I am pretty certain its a cuz. The white areoles are a dead give away. Torchs areoles are real cream color and fading to a tannish with age. Before I say for certain what it is will you please provide unclose pics, like the ones I posted above. Full plant pic, top pic, upclose pic of areoles (new and aged as they change in color with age)?

I think it looks similar to the macrogonus, maybe a torch/macro hybrid of some sort? Anyways, here are some more pics...

Hey, these are two pics of a cacti a friend of mine gave me recently. He said "This is definitely San Pedro" and I'd just like an official identification. Awesome thread, by the way!

That Diffently isn't a pedro or and trich for that matter, It looks like cerues peruvianus or the queen of the night.

Thanks man. I did a few quick searches and it certainly looks similar. Although, all the pictures I found, the areolae are a much lighter colour than the ones in the picture. Is there any explanation for that?

no, not Pilosocereus, its really a tricho.
the hair you are seeing on one areole might be spider web, but apart from that it has not the P. azureus look
