Hi all

This is a cactus I got recently. It seems to be mammillaria like.  Flowering as profusely as my m. boscana.  But the spines are tiny.  The plant is in a 7cm pot.

Any help with identification would be useful

Its the form of either M. Polythele or M. spinosissima known as In Pico, I think. Its a cultivar of an aberrant form.

Hi Chris, Many, many thanks.

Sorry to pollute your forum with hybrids, but I hate having unidentified plants and this one came with a label of Euphorbia woodii which it is definitely not. I shall have to put a picture of my m. boscana in the boasting forum to make up for it LOL.

No problem! Personally I don't like monstrose or cristate plants, but many others find them fascinating.

A name for your plant is M. tulensis var. stachellos (stachellos is German and means without spines, or sin pico in Spanish). It is also known under a bunch of other names. This was mentioned before in this forum. If you search the internet for photos of tulensis var. stachellos you will find your plant.
The spinosissima form is different from your plant (spinosissima un pico, i.e. with one spine only).

Wolter ten Hoeve.
