Lobivia einsteinii v gonjianii

This form of L.einsteinii looks a lot like R. pygmaea, even with flowers. You have to look at the flower tube to see the true plant identity. Flower tubes of this plant have a lot more 'hair' than any Rebutia flower.

R. einsteinii is a nice species, not too common i collections. Lots of new forms was discovered in recent years, including the red flowering form of this usually yellow or orange flowering species.
