My speciality is losing labels. I tend to discard or ignore unidentifiable seedlings. But this is a cutey, young but with big flower.

Looks like Gymno vatteri.

Sorry but can't agree with Vatteri, most probably Asterias or Stellatum which are the same plant. I'd go for Stellatum

quehlianum is back in favour as the name for stellatum now, as discussed in GC's book which post-dates the NCL
As confirmed by Graham Evans when he gave an excellent Gymno talk last night at Dartford Branch.

Tomorrow I will try some elimination, but the likely candidates are from my seed purchase records -

Gymnocalycium berchtii JS 153
Gymnocalycium esperanzae WP_315/737 [GC/16]
Gymnocalycium occultum p 131
Gymnocalycium sibalii JPR 92-077/173 (Sierra Chica, Arg)
Gymnocalycium sutterianum ssp. Dolezalii p 192

I was going to suggest G. berchtii, based on the black (-ish green) rather than brown body and the pinkish flower. G. stellatum has creamy flowers but never pink so far as I know. Same for G. occultum. It isn't G. vatteri.

Some of the others on your list might be possibles, but I don't have them to compare.

I think that's my inexpert guess. Just for the record it was sown March 2017 and is the only germination/remainer, just under an inch diameter now.
