Yes, it is mammillaria gracilis. Notorious for breeding like rabbits with those pups that very very very easily fall off and root up elsewhere, haha.

Otherwise a very pretty and compact little plant.

Thank you for the ID.

I have mammillaria gracilis f arizona snowcap which looks so different to this one that I hadn't realised this was related.
