Melon Cactus (Melocactus spp.), also known as the Turk's Cap Cactus, is a genus of cactus with about 30–40 species belonging to the cactus family (Cactaceae). 

They are native to the Caribbean, western Mexico through Central America to northern South America.

Mature plants are easily recognizable by a wool-like and bristle-coated structure (cephalium) at the top (apex) of the plant, containing a mass of areoles from which the small flowers grow.

 

The original botanical illustration was done by Etienne Denisse and published in the lavishly-illustrated Flore d’Amérique (1843-46).

Etienne Denisse (1785 – 1861) was a lithographer for the French royal court and spent his early career at the botanical garden of the Muséum National d’Histoire Naturelle in Paris.

He was soon employed by the French government to work in the French West Indies where he spent years illustrating and collecting plants from the region and sending specimens back to France.
