    1. Reviewed by Adam Searcy    Feb 4, 2017

    Action: changed name from "Opuntia phaeacantha" to "Opuntia ficus-indica "

    Reviewer's comments:
         "The photograph was taken at an arboretum in Central California and shows a plant inconsistent with Opuntia phaecantha--but appears to be O. ficus-indica. Probably an entry error."
