Hello all, can someone help me to identify my little mammilarias?
I suspect, bombicina or bocasana.
Blooms are pink, small with central darker stripe.
The thorns are hook shaped.

Thank you in advance

Z.

Looks just like my M. glassii subsp. ascencionis. Not sure about the hooked spines though?!

Thank you Simon, among the pictures I searched on the web, i think this is the right one!
Hooked thons are frequent on top of the plant, slightly longer then hairy white ones.
Many thanks and congrats to you: bingo!

Show us a picture when it flowers next year and we'll be able to say for sure.

M.glassii subsp. ascencionis is the best variety and has much larger flowers.

This looks like glassii ssp ascensionis for sure.

Thank you Chris for confirmation.

Isn't it unusual to have blooms in mid November?! (I'm in Italy, USDA8)

Yes, indeed it is unusual, but nice to have at this time of year!
