Dyckia sp From Pedreira close to Viamão-RS

This plant is not yet described and I named it "from Pedreira" (not pedreire!)
Comes from Northeastern Porto Alegre and it is found in some other areas around.
Pedreira is Portuguese for quarry.
Notice the last or apical third of the leaves is spineless!
This is a very beautiful plant, mulileafed, round as a ball and the size of a soccer ball.
