Help, cactus identification.

Having trouble finding an ID for this cactus. It appears very much like a Lee's Dwarf Snowball, Escobaria sneedii ssp. leii. However there are 12 spines, and that cactus is apparently very rare. Considering I picked it up at the local fruit and veg market (here in the uk) I doubt it is.

Mammillaria gracilis is sufficient. It is a slow growing miniature clumper.
