Beautiful clump …,
With flowers like that, I’d say they are in the Dolichothele group of Mammillaria, used to be a distinct genus. Start your search in the genus. I love those plants have have a few myself.

Please confirm or otherwise the ID of the Cactus species.
Photos taken during last Summer in Chennai.
My ID is Mammilaria beneckei.
What are the red projections (nipple like strictures/ Red chilli)/?
I guess the correct ID. These are seed pods (fruit)
Thanks … for your quick response & con firming the ID and for the identification of the peculiar structure
unid-TQ09: Please identify this cactus with amazingly beautiful flowers.
Is this some cultivar of Mammillaria lindsayi?
Hmm…. doesn’t look close enough. I am not good at cacti, so can’t be sure too.
Yes a cacti may be Mammillaria grahamii or its hybrid.
I had it in my garden. Very interesting in the sense, the spines were hooked and hence if it gets stuck on anything, it used to break off the mother plant. May be a kind of vegetative dispersal.
Mammillaria grahamii has pink flowers. Many Mammillaria species have been suggested for this plant, but did not agree well enough.
