I Bought the same plant at ELK , 3 weeks ago and it had the same label.

Tony is spot on it is a sub species of subterranea found near Incahuasi Bolivia. While the type species subterranea is found in Argentina.

Its a good choice, making a neat clump of heads which flowers well from a relatively small size.
