Cactus ID please

Baja California, Mexico(Zone 11)

Found this little delight at a local nursery, was attracted to the multi-headedness of it. Anyone know the name or have experience with this plant? Thanks for looking.

Yo Baja, I went outside into the freezing windy afternoon to check out some plants and while your plant is much larger it looks like a couple of my smaller Mammilaria spinosissima 'Red Headed Irishman', babies and all. Xuling

I think the spines are different. Here's a better picture, maybe it helps.

Baja, looks like a member of the Notocactus family. Just my guess, I'm no expert. cll

How about Parodia scopa subsp. nivea
(Which used to be a Notocactus)

Hehe. Must... restrain... impulse to pop a couple of heads off for propagation.

Thanks for the ID. That could be it. I will have to study some more pictures. I guess I can expect yellow flowers. The body of the plant is a bit blue, actually. That doesn't really come across in the photos. It was growing in day-long sun.

Sadly he won't survive in my zone. It is a lovely plant though.
