Ah, yes, it is one of those low clumps of cactus. Reminds me of what they refer to as Chickens and Hens or something like that. Probably 2% of us know much botany.

You may be thinking of Hedgehog cactus, of which Echinocereus are commonly called.

There are not that many types of cactus in the SW so over a bit of time it is relatively easy to get to recognize them - at least the genus, the species and variations can be subtle and many.
