Odd Pleiospilos nelii and Faucaria tigrina

Just bought a couple of elongated Pleiospilos "nelii". Are they different species, hybrids, or just growing oddly from whatever conditions they came from?

Here is the Faucaria? Some are spotty... some have more warts... some are more green. Are they hybrids? True? Faucaria tuberculosa?
Thanks.

I have no clue, but I am wondering if some mislabeled plants went out. I saw the same thing at my local big box store. I bought a hobbit jade that was labeled as gollum.

I would first think P. bolusii, maybe simulans, but they are usually flatter, having said that my young simulans look like bolusii at the moment. Confused? I tag such plants like this P. bolusii?, meaning I have to check again later. LOL!

Faucaria looks like felina ssp tuberculosa or a hybrid of that, but definately some tuberculosa.
