OK, I'll try again.
#1 is M. stella-de-tacubaya, a species close to M. lasiacantha, but with a dark tipped hooked central spine. The central spine is rather variable, some plants have a really stout spine, others none, or very short. Your plant is in the latter category.
#2 is a Turbinicarpus, and I am not sure about the species, maybe pseudomacrochele.
#3 I don't immediately recognise, though there are several possibilities I have in mind. Do you have another photo? if possibly taken so it shows the whole plant body.

Not sure about #1, but possibly a hybrid with M. gracilis. Usually it has cream flowers, though red are known, but larger pink ones like your photo - that say shybrid to me.
#2 is the red spined form of M. dixanthocentron, though it might be M. huitzilopochtlii, but I don't think so.
#3 is certainly M. rekoi ssp. leptacantha.

I did think about M. huizilopochtlii ssp. niduliformis, and looking again I think you could be right. The flowers are more huitz than dix, though I haven't seen the brown spined dix in flower. I've had one plant for years, but it has never flowered.
