Bumping for any cacti aficionados

Got a book at home, JC, but I'm at work so somebody will answer before I can look. Just wanted to say nice shot....

Thanks Mary, I looked through a LOT o images on google, still no clue on my part though.

I can ID a moving snake seeing a flash of scales though the weeds, but I am clueless with plants.

Wish I could help...I looked through Google too, and my cactus pictures on my hard drive (with the names of some on them) but I can't come up with anything....thought it could be a "Feather Cactus" but it doesn't look 'feathery' enough... sorry

it could be a Rebutia,( Rebutia pulvinosaf f. albiflora) it will helps if you have another shot showing more of the plant.

Something in the Mammillaria family?

Very knowledgeable people there who helped me correctly identify a cactus before.

It helps if it is known where the plant lives - Southwest US - or in a pot on the porch?
