Mammillaria "CATERPINCY "
(Above in the square pot) and Mammillaria painteri forma mostruosa
(Below in the round pot) is a monstrose, this are two old very similar cultivar
with really weird shapes
characterized by reduced or absent

branching cultivar that forms large low
clusters of soft textured green
stems, some only a few centimeters across. Without or with very few
spines a the tubercles tip. The flowers are small and pink.

looks almost identical to
Mammillaria crinita ssp. crinita "mostruosa"
we do not exclude that the two different named cultivar are the same.
