Ferocactus cylindraceus is a species of barrel cactus which is known by several common names, including California barrel cactus, Desert barrel cactus, and miner's compass. It was first described by George Engelmann in 1853.

Usually cylindrical or spherical with some older specimens forming columns 2 metres (6.6 ft) in height, it is covered in long, plentiful spines, which are straight and red when new and become curved and grey as they age. The cactus bears flowers that are maroon outside, and bright yellow inside, with red or yellow centers on the side that faces the sun. The fleshy, hollow fruits are yellow.
