Contrary to the normal Astrophytum Superkabuto, that has only a mosaic of extensive ± rounded white dots the “Zebra type” differs for the diverse pattern that form distinct v-shaped lines resembling the shape of fly's wings. This particular form is also called "V-type", “Fly's wings type” or “Tiger” by Thai growers. The white V-markings and striped bands are not seen in most of the normal 'Super Kabuto' seedlings, and will change and emphasize with age.
