I'm not even sure these are Mammillarias, but I'm pretty sure that some kind person on here will know:

I now suspect that the second photo is Parodia haselbergii.

Hi Perry,
I think you're right about the second. I'm not sure, but I have to say that when I first saw your first photo, and I hadn't scrolled down to the second, P. haselbergii was my thought for that too!
Definitely not a Mamm, anyway, says he sticking his neck out....
There's a simple test for a Mamm - are there axils at the bottom of the tubercles? If not, then what you have is almost certainly South American, and probably a Parodia.

Now THAT's the sort of information I need. I haven't seen that in any of my books! Fantastic.

Many thanks. I'll check them out later today.

Hi Perry,

As you now can see the second plant is Parodia haselbergii. The first plant although looking similar I think might be Rebutia muscula or similar white spined rebutia. Parodia of the haselbergii type tend to have a tilted growing point, whereas, I can't see that in the 1st photo .Obviously, when it flowers you can tell if it haselbergii. If it were to be a rebutia it would have buds emerging around the base of the plant.

This looks entirely likely; the second plant definitely has the tilted growing point, whereas the first one is almost perfectly symmetrical. They are similar in appearance but by no means identical. Thank you for your help.

Yes, I think you're right, Del.
