I'd say Echinopsis oxygona (assuming that's still the correct name!). It could also be a hybrid.

I'd wait for some confirmation before writing a label - not been doing this too long yet!

While I'm inclined to agree with the id as oxygona, it would be useful to see the plant body, please!

It's tiny and out of focus though.

A photo size of 148 x 127 pixels isn't very helpful for id purposes either, Geoff, are you using a pin-hole camera?!

The photo looks like one of the Lambs colour photos they used to print on their John Bull Printing Kit in Worthing. I always wondered how they did it.
