The different species of Wilcoxia are often, these days, referred to Echinocereus, on the grounds that the only thing distinguishing them is their thin stem. They have the same green stigma which is common in Echinocereus. Still, for the collector, they form a group with a distinctive appearance. With time, they form a tuberous root, from which the thin stems can regenerate if lost, as is more likely in habitat than when protected in a greenhouse.
