Identify this cactus please

Post by gggricardo »

I need to know the name of this cactus. I have seen it many times on YouTube, but I haven't been able to spot a tag with its name. From my perspective my first guess is a crested and variegated Mammillaria. I might be wrong and my second guess would be gymnocalycium? Can any one help me with the correct name please.

Thank you Bryan. Gymnocalycium damsii cristata variegated is the plant closer to the pictures I posted. I think that's the plant.
