Cactus with yellow flowers - ID

Any idea what type of cactus this is?

It blooms with ridiculously large lemon-yellow flowers with a slight scent of a dandelion ... they never open completely and on the photos its about as much as it will open. The flowers have been alive for 3 days so far.

My guess is some sort of notocactus/parodia.

I can say without doubt that it is a beautiful plant, and so are your photos. Nicely done. Thanks for sharing.

Yes it is a notocactus. Looks like mammulosus.

There is a peach flowered form too. Very pretty.

Can't believe that those flowers could be considered ridiculous in any way. They are fabulous.

RE: Cactus with yellow flowers - ID

I meant ridiculously large - not ugly :) ... when open, the flowers eclipse the body.
