ID request 3

This plant was purchased in bud a few days ago. I'm thinking Parodia/Notocactus/Whatever it's called today?.....sp. scopa?

unfortunately the plant is etiolated from being kept too dark, but I thought the flowers might help. Any comments?

I think ssp scopa has more feathery type spines, but it sure looks like a noto/parodia

RE: ID request 3

Definitely not Notocactus scopa, but probably some other Notocactus.

RE: ID request 3

I brought one home several days ago and will be looking for an ID as well.
