Mystery Gymnos

Please help! I have these gymnos and i don't know what they are. The first one came labelled andreae, but i'm not sure that's quite right. Any suggestions? And the second one I think might be a young saglionis, but I don't have the best track record with these things. http://www.cactiguide.com/forum...

Oxygona colour change?

I have a cactus that was given to me by my mother, she's had it since the early 70's. I thought it was Echinopsis oxygona, and it matched the profile perfectly, pink flowers and all, up until last year when it flowered white.
