    Description

    Individuals of E. sneedii var. sneedii were found to occur in greater abundance within the Guadalupe Mountains than was previously recorded. No additional populations morphologically intermediate between E. guadalupensis and E. sneedii were found. Taxonomic affiliation and geographic distribution among three Escobaria taxa were readdressed with phenetic analyses. Principle components analysis (PCA) showed moderate resolution between individuals representing E. guadalupensis and E. sneedii. Resolution was poor between those of E. sneedii var. sneedii and E. sneedii var. leei. Results from discriminant analysis (DA) correctly classified individuals within populations of E. guadalupensis, E. sneedii var. sneedii and E. sneedii var. leei 100, 79.6, and 86.4 percent, respectively. The taxonomic recognition of E. sneedii var. leei, as separate from E. sneedii var. sneedii is tenuous.
