Hello!!! I have a new mammillaria, theis being hard to identify me. I think in Mammillaria Spinossisima ssp. tepoxtlana or maybe some variety of Mammillaria Nunezii, but the description of the two do not match my cactus.
Has 16-17 radial spines is straight and white, 2 white central spines (one up and one down with sharp hook) hook thorn tip has light brown.

I don't think this plant is your suggestions, a young seedling is difficult to always name correctly. However, I suggest m. magnifica or possibly m. rekoi.

I agree, Derek, one of those, at least at this stage of development.
