Hello-

I recently found this forum.  The Mammillaria A-Z gallery is wonderful!  

Below is a pic of a Mamm that I would like to ID.  Although not flowering now; the flowers are pink.

Thank you very much for the welcome.  Very Happy  Very Happy  Very Happy 

Well.....I think I found it.  I looked through ~100 images on Google Image, and I cannot believe the answer.  

(Mamm petterssonii).  I was hoping for something rare, LOL.

"A commonly found variety also known as Mammillaria apozolensis v. saltensis is occasionally sold as Lau1045. It is a striking plant with curly golden spines. This Mammillaria is named after the city of Apozol (Zacatecas state)."  

It looks nothing my other M. petterssonii plants.  I was able to find other plants under this name that are a match.  It's fairly distinct.

I do think that it is a form of M. petterssonii, but this species is very variable.
M. apozolensis var. saltensis (which I consider a form of petterssonii) looks less likely to me, the body colour should be lighter, and the spines also look a bit too reddish.
Attached are a few photos of M. apozolensis var. saltensis in habitat (they all have a very uniform appearance), as well as a photo of the waterfall (El Salto in Spanish) after which this variety was named. The plants grow in the steep canyon walls and also on the rocks around the canyon.
