Mammillaria parkinsonii. There are around 300 species of Mammillarias. Most are native to Mexico. In their range you can find Mammillarias from sea level to high elevations. They also vary in size from miniature 1 inch in diameter (2.5 cm), to columnar types 1 foot tall (30 cm). And there are many clumping types. The name Mammillaria comes from Latin for "nipple", because the areolas (structures carrying the spines) are cone shaped. You are selecting the cactus pictured below.
