Description: FUKURYU is a Japanese word that
would mean presence of additional ribs (coasts). But the name "Fukuryu"
applies to two quite distinct forms:
Type A: This is the more common form with small, partially
developed extra ribs,
usually this additional ribs will not
reach the plant apex, they have not areoles and develops on the
lateral side sandwiched between two contiguous true ribs.
This form has many irregular (more or less prominent) “warts”
between and on the ribs surface. This form is rare and very different.
