Another Haworthia Who?

I received this in trade as H mutica but me thinks it is something else. The ends of the leaves are not blunt and slightly rounded as H. mutica. Maybe H. retusa????

While it could be a variety of H. mutica, none of the pictures I've seen have teeth on the leaf margins as mine has.

Does it have offsets? Seems like similar types that offset easily are common and sold under many names, including retusa. Looking at lists of species, I can't figure them out. And the naming is hardly clear cut either, with old names and different opinions of clumping versus splitting of species.

Could some of these in the trade be hybrids? The easy offset of pups makes some very easy to propagate.

Could be Turgida.

Is mine the same plant? If so, it is Haworthia pygmaea f. crystallina.

H. emelyae major has rough textured leaves. These are smooth with leaf margin spines.

Got yourself a not as easy to find Haworitha. Good news is you and others know what it's not. If your using some form of a detailed plant ID guide may I ask which one ?

Looks like one of the common ones that cluster to me, like the first one I bought. I asked for an ID and got a bunch of different answers that didn't seem to match either.

I now believe this is Haworthia mirabilis mundula.

Very close if not your exact, if exact IMO yours is better looking than those I have seen via image searching.

I think it is H. mutica and that that lable was correct.
Compare to mine in the picture. (Hm, when :I see my picture the teeth are not very well to see, but they are there :)

This is one I bought as H.mirabilis mundula. It seems the teeth are same as yours, but leaves are dark green and don't seem to be as "juicy" looking as yours or Harry's. And the windows on yours look more see-thru to me too. But mine probably doesn't get as much light as yours, so coloring may be different?
Unless label on mine was wrong...or I am wrong (wouldn't be first time).

Here they are side-by-side (my photo is not as good as other two!)

Rina, your photo is just fine. Don't beat yourself up... this isn't a photo contest...LoL!!!

I think yours looks somewhat less "plump" is because you may be growing yours harder; less water, more light, etc.

Harry, I do see the similarities. You may be correct. But when I look at both of ours, I see more blunting of the tips of the leaves on yours while mine are more of a sharp triangular shape.

Bottom line, this is so confusing but I thank all of you very much for your honest participation...I enjoy this conversation!
