Stenocactus is typified by a large number of wavy ribs.  That does not appear to be of that genus.

Stenocereus, not stenocactus. I accidentally put stenocactus in the title.

not totally sure about stenocereus... might be pecten aborigum.. lets see the spines colour when in full growth... its kind of slender for pringley, has it been in full sun?

 

whats the width at the crown?

It's shade grown and much thinner than my larger pachycereus pringlei specimens, but I guess the shade could have caused this. The spination during the growing season is bright pink. Crown is 4-5" in diameter. It was given to me last year and I've kept growing it in shade as it was before.
