Hi all

Today I have been sifting thorugh my collection and found a few mislabelled and unlabelled plants.
Any identification would be much appreciated.

1. Mammillaria I bought off Masters Home Improvement, came without label.

2. Lobivia/Echinopsis bought off someone at the 2011 CSSA show, the seller said it would have red flowers.

3. Sulcorebutia (labellled as Sulcorebutia albopectinata), I am not sure what the plant is now called these days.

I can fit any more pics on the first post, so I have to write up a new one.

This one I bought of Collectors Corner, it is labelled Sulcorebutia crispata, however I have googled up that name and it doesn't look similar to my plant. I believe my plant is more of a Sulcorebutia canigueralii. An ID would be appreciated.

I call the sulcorebutia albopectinata by a different name, I don't know if it's correct but I call it rebutia heliosa v albopectinata. Do you know what colour the flower is?
I don't know whether its supposed to be called sulcorebutia or just rebutia though.

Got this from Cactus Art page:
http://www.cactuspedia.info/schede/REBUTIA/Rebutia_heliosa/Rebutia_heliosa_condorensis/Rebutia_heliosa_condorensis.htm

Quote :
The only difference is the stigma colour, that is white in condorensis and pale green in albopectinata.

Hope that helps and doesn't create more question

The flower colour is red. That plant seems more like Rebutia heliosa condorensis, after googling the name online and checking out some pics.

Do you have any idea on any of the other plants?

Thanks

What I quoted from Cactus Art in my above post states that the only difference between varient condorensis and albopectinata is the stigma colour.

Albopectinata having a pale green stigma whilst condorensis has a white stigma.

Sorry but can't help you with I.Ds on the other plants.

If you search on the internet hard enough you should be able to find them.
When I google plants that I don't know the names of but I know what genus they are in I just type in their genus then type in "A" and click on all the plant names that automatically come up look through the images to see if the plant I want and if not I do the same with "B" then "C" and so on. I usually find my plant that way if I have no idea what it is.
