I have bought a lot of cacti from an old guy in the past but he never labelled them. I just bought them because I liked them. Knowing the identity doesn't really bother me just curious if you could help with your ideas. Sorry the photography is a bit blurrred

Wow, almost said the last was an echinopsis clump - the other almost looked like Loph Caespitosa...no is it a gymno, can't be sure, but they were all blurred

wow im confused.
1. very strange, skin tells me maybe matucana madisoniorum?
2. green clumper; way confused. Gymnocalycium? Frailea? Rebutia? has it ever flowered? a flower bud would be enough to tell.
3. Rebutia or Sulcorebutia sp.
4. one of many forms of cereus peruvianus monstrose with some crest in the foreground

I was looking at a picture of Asterias cv. Kiko, and it looks alot like a form of that, but i highly doubt it is.
