Now we come to the more controversial small things. I'm pretty sure this is Rebutia pygmaea.

Is this more Rebutia pygmaea? Not sure. It looks a a bit soft and green to me. I'm open to suggestions.

As for these two, not even Willy is sure what they are. I might venture Lobivia, but I wouldn't go further. Again I'm open to suggestions.

I think this is probably the same species, though the body colour is a bit different.

Last plant from this site. A really wild spined form of Parodia maassii. Wouldn't have minded taking this one home.

It was pretty difficult to drag the gang away from the Yavias in the end. Come on guys it's time to move on, Mike's waiting!

Last shot of the scenery. Then we got in the van and headed back down the valley to pick up Mike from his enforced exile in Humahuaca.
