The first one looks like a Coryphanta and the second like Prodia werneri

For the second one, I vote for Notocactus uebelmannianus. Here's a photo of mine to compare.

The first does resemble a Coryphantha, but I think it is Mammillaria magnimamma.

I agree S_B.. #1 does resemble a Cory, but I have never seen a Cory at any Lowes, while M. magnimamma is quite common there. #2, without question in my mind is N. uebelmanniaus..

I agree with the Mam and Noto IDs. Parodia werneri is the name assigned by those who consider Notos to be Parodias (the 'lumped' name, if you will).

hmmmm how about mammillaria krameri? i did a search of m Mammillaria magnimamma and saw a pic of krameri i tinhk looks a bit more like this one guess if it blooms that will help . I once had a cacti similar to this one and i havent seen it since it was an odd blue green color had shorter spines and the tubercles were more compact wish i could find even just a picture of it so someone could name it and i could buy one again LoL thanks for the help. Found some pics of the Parodia werneri/Notocactus uebelmanniaus as well can't wait for it to bloom now
thanks again

I am also patiently waiting for my 4 N. uebelmanniaus to bloom.
They did not bloom this year, perhaps because they were transplanted. Hoping for next year! The photos of the blooms I have seen are spectacular!! :-)

Mammillaria krameri is not a valid name. It isn't even clear exactly what it is, possibly a cultivated form and possibly a hybrid. It is generally considered to be related to Mamillaria centricirrha, which is now generally lumped into M. magnimamma. Probably best to avoid this name unless you bought it labelled as krameri.
