Parodia magnifica (F. Ritter) F.H. Brandt, Kakt. Orchid. Rundschau 1982(4): 62 1982. (Syn: Eriocactus magnificus F. Ritter; Notocactus magnificus (F.Ritter) Krainz ex N.P.Taylor);  

Parodia magnifica is a species of flowering plant in the Cactaceae family, native to southern Brazil.

It is a cactus growing to 7–15 cm (3–6 in) tall by 45 cm (18 in) broad, with heavily ribbed, spherical to columnar, spiny and hairy stems, bearing pale yellow flowers in summer.[1]
In cultivation it must be kept above 10 °C (50 °F), so in temperate regions is grown under glass.

Is this also a Notocactus?

Those are Notocactus magnificus …,

Also known as Parodia magnifica. These have to be for sale, no one would own that many plants of one species right?

Parodia leninghausii also known as Notocactus leninghausii.

Found the images of the two Parodia taxa at. But couldn’t understand the differences.
