Hello, everyone!
Some time ago I bought a notocactus ottonis at a garden shop - and there was another cactus in the same pot. I wondered what it was - am still in deep doubt: whether it is a mammillaria/dolichothele (approximate name, maybe) or a coryphantha after all?
Sorry for the appearance - the plant must have gone through some transport inconveniences, I'm afraid.
Some centrals have curved tips - I couldn't take decent pics of them.

Thanks for any ideas!

Well, no sorries - I had the same idea for some moments as well. (It looks like an ancient chimera: resembling different species put together in one plant.) Late merry Xmas to you!

I can't immediately place it, but also I can't see that it has axils at the bottom of each tubercle? The one that I thought could be an axil, is, I think a damage scar. Its very young, so maybe needs to grow a bit more before we can help much more.

All right. I'll let it grow and see if it gets any new features to make identification easier next time! Maybe next summer's growth will help!
