Echinocereus coccineus Engelm. March 27, 2004, Zion National Park, Wash. Co., Utah Greatly misunderstood species, only known from Utah in Washington Co. Stems few to many forming clumps; flowers often dioecious; flowers have a constricted “waist”; smooth spines; heads taller, flowers smaller, narrower, areoles closer together than E. mojavensis. Visited by bees more than hummingbirds. Blooms earlier than E. mojavensis. Often referred to as E. triglochidiatus which as now understood does not occur in Utah (or if it does, only in far southeastern corner of the state).
