Would a Haworthia/Tulista Opalina be closely related to these few types?

All my plants are kept indoors and I started collecting in August 2018. Favourites are Pachyphytum, Echeveria, Haworthia, Mesembs and oddball Cacti.

Most of the back numbers of Alsterworthia International are downloadable from https://alsterworthia.wordpress.com/journal/ and they're full of cultivar names if you can be bothered rummaging or scraping.
Although the Alsterworthia site above is still active (for the moment) the Alsterworthia archive is now maintained by the Haworthia Society at:

T. opalina has very small but denser white warts. It is a natural wild form rather than one of these garden selections.

Is this the special edition as in the shop on their site? Regrettably .... sold out
Attempting to grow Aeoniums, Aylostera, Echinocereus, Echinopsis, Gymnocalycium, Lithops, Matucana, Rebutia, and Sulcorebutia.
Currently being wooed by Haworthia, and attempting hybridisation.

Without wanting to derail, does that mean that this is another Society that has stopped being?

Although it's mostly showcasing variation in natural forms, there are some named forms/hybrids in a current thread on the Forums du Cactus Francophone: https://www.cactuspro.com/forum/read.php?1,803238

Yes, Phil, this note from Harry Mays was printed on the last page of Aloe Cultivars Vol 3 Special Ed. on this page:
https://alsterworthia.haworthia.org/special-issues/
The Haworthia Society is maintaining the site as an Archive.= on behalf of Harry and Lawrence.
