Euphorbia submammillaris

I finally remembered to take a picture of this specimen for ID. I believe it is E. submammillaris, correct?
(Apologies for the not so awesome pictures)

Looks more like E. enopla to me, although I'm not a Euphorbia expert.

More likely to be plain old mammalaris, my understanding was submammalaris is more cushion forming though i'm not really too sure. It's one of the two.

it's not enopla/ferox/etc

yep, it's certainly not enopla but either mammillaris or submammillaris.

I'm not sure about the differences but after what you said Mc Farland I checked euphorbia.de and it says that mammillaris grows like this:

and submammillaris grows like this:

So maybe when my plant grows bigger I can decide which species it is according to its growth habit.
