Dear Otto,
It would appear that your Mexican xerophyte is Astrolepis  integerrima-a nice 
little plant. 
It is widespread in Mexico, as well as being found in the southwestern US,  
i.e. Arizona, New Mexico, Texas. It is usually found in limestone substrates in 
 the wild but my experience is that it will take my xeric mix without any 
needed  added lime. It does well for me in the xeric garden here in Bakersfield,  
You have a nice xeric collection. If you're interested in spore of other  
xerics, contact me off list and I can forward you a list of what I have
