Hello Mammillaria aficionados!

I was hoping someone may help in identifying these three cacti. I can take more detailed shots if needed.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Alan

#1 - Mammillaria sp - Any ideas?

#2 - I hope this is a Mammillaria or else I'm in the wrong place :-)

#3 - I'm guessing M. spinosissima. Previous owner said it gets a ring of pink flowers on stems.

I would suggest:
M. haageana for #1
M. hahniana ssp bravoe for #2 - I may not be right but you are in the right place.
Not sure about #3. I'm sure I know it, but I just can't place it. Hopefully someone else will put me right.

#3 looks like M. matudae to me. The picture is not very clear, though.

I think a closer shot of just one head would help. M. matudae has a very distinctive single dark upwards pointing central spine, which I didn't see, and it does tend to give the stem a darker appearance than it looks in this photo. Some indication of size also would help.

Thanks very much for the replies Chris43 and Glanissimo.

Here is a closer shot of #3.
The longest stems are ten inches. They range from two to two and a half inches thick.
The plant itself doesn't look its best as the previous owner kept it out in the rain. (we have cool wet winters here in Tasmania)

Cheers

Alan

To me, M. matudae it is. What do you say, Chris?

Yes, you were right first time, it is matudae without doubt.
