avec complément dans l'Appendix de The Cactaceae 4: 273, fig. 246 (1923):
"On page 89, vol.II, under Lemaireocereus eichlamii, add to the description:
Fruit globular, about 5 cm. in diameter, becoming dry, not edible, thin-skinned, filled with numerous large seeds, the surface bearing scattered areoles, these densely short-felted with clusters of short spines subtended by small, ovate, acute scales; seeds black, 4 to 5 mm. long with a prominent hilum.
Insert: This plant is much used for hedges in Salvador and was obtained there by Mr. Paul C. Standley in the vicinity of Sonsonate, altitude 220 to 300 meters, March 1922 (No. 22328), but was not seen in the wild state. It is called there órgano. This species heretofore has been known only from Guatemala and was not known to us in fruit; this differs from that of other species of Lemaireocereus in being rather dry with very large seeds.
Also insert: Figure 246 is from a photograph of the plant, sent by F. Eichlam in 1909 to Washington, which flowered in 1918."
