Chile de Arbol [Moved from Home Cooking Board]

This is really a general question, but have you found "chile de arbol"? I just don't see them in the markets any where.
Note... the (I believe misnamed) Japanese or Japones chiles are a very close descendant of Arbol chiles... and make a fine subsitute.
They sell them at Surfas in LA for a dollar or so for a pretty big bag. I bought them there after I bought Sunday Suppers at Lucques and stocked up on some pretty obscure products but I remember seeing them at a local supermarket as well. Surfas does mail order-- check out their website or give them a call.
