Here are some pics of what was sold to me as cuzcoensis. Very similar but slightly different spine pattern which could be normal variation within that tribe

Yeah, that one definitely belongs to the Trichocereus cuzcoensis complex. Trichocereus cuzcoensis is described as from Cuzco and with more ribs, but these kinds of plants grow in Central Peru and belong to that species as well. They are something like intermediates between Trichocereus cuzcoensis and Trichocereus tarmaensis/knuthianus. The latter two belong to Trichocereus cuzcoensis in a wider sense as well. If it was labeled Peruvianus it could be from Knize.
