This is the first spineless mutation I have ever had occur in my nursery. It grows beautiful big pink flowers with red centers. Wonder if anyone can guess what it is?

It is Thelocactus bicolor! Funny to have a spineless form of a species that's named for its spines. I like the contradiction.
Here's a normal plant for comparison. The spineless one has flowered so the grooves that run from the wool at the base of the spines towards the center of the plant (called the 'areolar groove') has round dots from where the flowers grew.

Maybe you could get it to make some seeds and see if you can get some more like it.

...Or register it as a new cultivar?

Awesome plant, congratulations.
Grafted on Peres or H.jusbertii ??
I try to imagine how it would look on its own roots.

Thanks everyone I am glad you like it.
It has been grafted onto harrissia for a while now so I should have it propagated soon.
Turns out that it is not unique, if you google Thelocactus bicolor inermis they have a pic of a remarkably similar looking one.
I have tried to breed with it several times, so far no viable seeds but i will keep trying.
