Cupressus arizonica

A tree occurring, of course, in Arizona. Also found occasionally in southwestern New Mexico and west Texas. This is the only Cupressus in this area, and the large, woody megastrobili alone distinguish it from from any other cupressacid in New Mexico.

Megastrobilus with seeds and spider and many microstrobili, in Boot Canyon in the Chisos Mountains, Big Bend National Park, 22 Mar 2006.
