I've just acquired some new succulents and I'm not totally sure what they are. Any thoughts would be great!

Also, I thought the last two were the same (the pot was labeled Echeveria Afterglow on one) but on closer inspection they are different colors. Do you think it is just that one has had more sun than the other?

#1 is Kalanchoe luciae, #4 isEcheveria harmsii. I think the first of the lower two is After glow and the second is Echeveria subrigida. But I could be mistaken about the after glow. My afterglow is usually has more color to it. The first one could be E subrigida during winter coloration.

#2 is oscularia deltoides
#3 haworthia cymbiformis

#2 is Corpuscularia lehmannii, a great little shrubby mesemb with odd yellow-translucent flowers.

#4 looks like Haworthia cymbiformis var obtusa.

sorry, #3 - Haworthia

Zeck, we double posted! Well, you beat me by 3 minutes.

Its better that you came about hanz. I didnt look closely enough at #2 and thought it had the little teeth! We would have had a misidentified succulent!

Adding my take on these (some same, some diff):

1. Kalanchoe luciae
2. Corpuscularia lehmannii
3. Haworthia cymbiformis v. obtusa
4. Echeveria pulvinata (you would need to see blooms to determine if this species or harmsii)
5. & 6. Both look like within range for Echeveria 'Afterglow' to me.

Thank you for all the help! I really appreciate it. I'll have to see what happens with the bottom two when they get a little more sun.

I would agree with Rosemarie about the ID. From your pictures, it is hard to see the leaves, specifically I am looking for a "keel" in the center of the leaf it it is Echeveria subrigida, while Echeveria 'Afterglow' has smooth leaves. While I do have both, neither of mine are looking too good now so this picture is from the internet and you can see the mid-line "keel" on the leaves.

Since I didn't want to upload these to my Photobucket, I'm showing another picture from the internet. This is an example of Echeveria 'Afterglow'. Notice the leaves are smooth. The color on either can be very similar depending on cultural situations, i.e., water, temperature and sun exposure.

Thanks bikerdoc5968! I think they are both Afterglow then. No "keel"
