I can't find a spherical plant, but I have got some spherical leaves...

It's sort of globular, for now!
I've lost the label, so any suggestions would be welcome?

It looks like Stapelia magnifica with that flower coming.

Is there such a plant, because I can't find it?

Hi,

I have this plant as Gymnocalycium damsii rotundulum. Rotundulum presumably means round, and I think it has a nice round look in this picture.
