spineless cactus-y noID plant

On the right is a Haworthia, I believe. (It got blown over in a storm 2 nights ago, waiting for warmer nights to wash it off.)

Any ID on the one on the left? It had pinkish flower buds sticking out of the middle in places when I got it about a month ago, but they gave up from being inside so much.

The one on the left is A stapleia, probably gigantea. Its difficult to ID without a flower, but my asclepiad expert sister said most likely a gigantea.
The one on the right is haworthia. Probably some hybrid of coarctata.

The Stapelia looks more like grandiflora to me, showing us its lovely microthriks, right Zech? There are tons of Stapeliads that look similar but only a few are common in cultivation.

Yes, they are quite pungent:)
