North of the city of Lima, not far from the Panamerican Highway,
Haageocereus tenuis grows in a very restricted area, threatened
by development of the land for chicken farms, or irrigation for sugar-cane
There is an article on this and another Haageocereus species
by the Peruvian cactus expert, Carlos Ostolaza, in the
British Cactus & Succulent Journal, Vol. 18, No. 3 (September 2000).
