Isolatocereus dumortieri is endemic to Mexico, where it is widely distributed. It occurs in the states of Aguascalientes, Federal District, Guanajuato, Hidalgo, Jalisco, Michoacán, Morelos, Oaxaca, Puebla, Querétaro, San Luis Potosí, and Veracruz. Isolatocereus dumortieri is a large candelabra-like cactus, often tree-like, 6 to 15 meters high, with a well-defined woody trunk, more than one metre long, and 30 cm in diameter and has multiple branches. The branches are erect almost from the first, with numerous constrictions, very pale bluish green or somewhat glaucous. Isolatocereus dumortieri was also known as CereusLemaireocereusStenocereus and Rathbunia in prior lives. It was common a few years ago as Lemaireocereus dumortieri. It possesses several unique morphological features such as the small, nearly contiguous areoles, as well as its short, nearly tubular nocturnal flowers and spineless fruit, but the scales of the ovary sometimes subtend bristles, if not spines, in their axils. Greenhouse plants much resemble Pachycereus marginatus, and both species have small flowers; but the wild plants are very unlike and the fruit and seeds differ widely. Mature specimens superficially resemble Pachycereus weberi.

crown, open during the night but lasting until midday, odorless, tubular to funnelform, short, pale green to white, to 5 cm long, the tube and ovary bearing small ovate scales with bunches of felt and occasionally bristles in their axils, the limb about 2.5 cm broad.
