34e. Opuntia polyacantha Haworth var. erinacea (Engelmann & J. M. Bigelow) B. D. Parfitt, Cact. Succ. J. (Los Angeles). 70: 188. 1998.

Mojave pricklypear, grizzly bear pricklypear

Opuntia erinacea Engelmann & J. M. Bigelow, Proc. Amer. Acad. Arts 3: 301. 1856; O. erinacea var. ursina (F. A. C. Weber) Parish; O. hystricina Engelmann & Bigelow var. ursina (F. A. C. Weber) Backeberg; O. ursina F. A. C. Weber

Stem segments elliptic to obovate, (7-)10-20 × 5-10 cm; areoles 8-14 per diagonal row across midstem segment, 12-17 mm apart. Spines 1-18 per areole, in essentially all areoles, grading in size and orientation, yellow to dark brown, turning gray, pink-gray, or gray-brown, the longest spreading and curling in all directions especially on proximal stem segments, usually ascending and ± straight near stem segment apex, deflexed to reflexed near base, (35-)40-90(-185) mm, spines of older stem segments more numerous, less straight, and reflexed. Fruits stout; areoles 20-33, each bearing 7-13 spines, 8-20 mm. 2 n = 44.

Flowering late spring. Deserts, desert grasslands, juniper woodlands, alluvial, sandy or gravelly soils; 1000-1400 m; Ariz., Calif., Nev., Utah.

Plants of Opuntia polyacantha var. erinacea with very long, wavy hairlike spines have been treated as O. ursina or O. erinacea var. ursina . Such plants, however, occur at the original (type) locality for var. erinaceae , and the characteristic spines may appear on the oldest stem of otherwise straight-spined plants. The name Opuntia erinacea has been widely misapplied to some plants of other varieties of O. polyacantha .

Benson; O. erinacea var. rhodantha (K. Schumann) L. D. Benson; O. erinacea var. xanthostemma (K. Schumann) L. D. Benson; O. rhodantha K. Schumann; O. xanthostemma K. Schumann
