Yeah they're somewhat related I think, although they're probably not the closest cousins. They really do look like small lophs with long nails like spines.

Lophophora jourdaniana is thought to be an interspecific hybrid with Turbinicarpus.

 

One thing worth noting about this plant is its absolutely hilarious current scientific name: 

Turbinicarpus schmiedickeanus (pronounced [shuv' my dick in ya anus])
