Danke für die Informationen, Steffen.

Nach einigen Recherchen müßte es sich um
( ich weiß, die Taxonomen streiten sich heftig ! )

Gymnocactus beguinii
nom. ille. = Neolloydia smithii (Muehlpf.) Kladiwa & Fittkau
handeln.
Weitere Synonyme
Gymnacactus beguinii var. smithii
bzw. var. senilis

Und noch ein Textabschnitt, den ich gefunden habe :

N. gautii (Gym.)
(Syn.: N. smithii and its fa. senilis, N. beguinii (Gym.))

This species suffers from an identity crisis, but I have elected to refer to it by its generally accepted name. It is larger than many of its cousins, being up to 10 cm high and 6 cm in diameter. Like N. conoidea it is quite wide-ranging in habitat, and several forms are known; e.g. N. smithii (SB308) has no centrals, a globular habit, and brownish radial spines which reflex towards the plant body, whilst N. smithii var. senilis (PZ263) is much whiter spined, more cylindrical in form and usually has 2-3 central spines to 1 cm long. All forms have a magenta flower with lighter margins. This species is prone to rupturing of the epidermis when over-watered.
