Echeveria pulidonis (E. Esther). Also, there is a little sow bug or pill bug on the top left succulent. Pill bugs curl up into balls while sow bugs don’t. I didn’t poke the little critter to figure out if it could conglobulate. Word on the internet is that sow bugs and pill bugs are land crustaceans, not insects. Neat!
