CJ and Maurillio,

Great photos, both. Acanthalogically thrilling is not an overstatement.

The spine pattern of Mamm wohlschlagerii is a little different to the one I pictured.
What about this one?

Mammillaria humboldtii?

Got a couple of those that are just 2mm green balls right now, not quite ready for comparison. ;)

Not quite. This one has a much bigger flower than M. humboldtii. The last spines photo was taken from Mammillaria herrerae.

Just to complete the picture of spine patterns of the 'white' Mammillarias.
These are the spines of Mammillaria humboldtii:

and these are those of Mammillaria albiflora:

No idea why the spine bundles in the 3 areoles in the upper half of this photo look so different.
