cuzcoensis or peruvianus/cuzco

Question

I bought two beautiful cacti (from the same plant) sold to me as trichocereus peruvianus/cuzco [a peruvianus from cuzco], the seller explained to me had very subtle differences in the whitening of the spines over time. After looking through ID threads, it would appear to me these guys are regular cuzcoensis. I also have not found any other sources for such a peruvianus on the net.

 

Any ideas?

 

THANKS

The first pic looks like a different plant to the second pic, are they the same?

If I look at pic 1, I'd say cuzcoensis. Cuzcoensis has swollen bases of the main central spines usually.

yeah same plant. The older, larger, fatter growths of this plant have smaller and less spines when compared to the pups

Yeah, it's definitely not a Trichocereus cuzcoensis. Probably Trichocereus peruvianus of some sort.
