Origin and Habitat: This is the southernmost population of Lophophora endemic of the of the state of Querétaro, México it grows only in a small area in the hight desert in a valley between Vizarron, Bucareli, and Toliman (Extent of occurrence about 300 km²). L. diffusa occurs at the south end of the range of the genus. Altitude: It grows at an elevations of 1,300 to 1,800 metres above sea level. Habitat and Ecology: Driest and stoniest desert Xerophytic shrubland, on calcareous soils where the soil is deep enough to allow the tuberous root to grow. L. diffusa grows mainly beneath the canopy of some locally dominant shrub and possible nurse plant (e.g. Larrea tridentata and Acacia sororia). The species is threatened by illegal collecting and use by indigenous people for medicine, and by collectors for ornamental trade. Collapse...
