Plant having tiny white spots.
Id please.

Haworthia sp.

This is probably Aloe aristata which can be mistaken for H fasciata. But the markings point towards A aristata

Thanks for possible ids of this plant.

…, you could be right although my knowledge in these plants is very limited.
I recollect the name given was Aloe quahtii, but I could not find anything on searching. Later, it slipped my mind.

The plant is Aloe aristata, note marginal teeth.
