Includes only one species.

Obregonia denegrii. Mexico. A very striking plant resembling an artichoke in appearance. The tubercles are leaf-like, arranged spirally, and bear the areoles at their tops. These are at first woolly and then bear 2 to 4 delicate and somewhat curved spines. After a time, however, the spines and wool disappear. Free flowering and easy to grow.
