I can foresee a lot of confusion on the ID, as there are are so many cross hybrid..
I found this link will be a good source for the ID reference, put it here as I always forget where to find it.
Will share the my Haworthias later

A few pics in the sun this Sunday morning. These are H. attenuata v. glabrata, retusa, pygmaea v. acuminata, and magnifica v. magnifica.
Baja_Costero said:Very nice texture on that plant. For what it's worth, that's one of the parents of Steve's Onigawara hybrid (first post, last pic). The other is nigra. I would imagine if you stress that hybrid properly, you might get some nice browns and/or purples. I would also imagine it's not a fast grower, so a nice stack of leaves might take a few years, and it might be a good idea to avoid serious stress for a while.
Steve, I created a new database entry for that cultivar and moved your image there, hope that's all good. Looks like that entry still needs to be renamed to Haworthiopsis, but we're halfway there.

It actually looks I have a couple of older leaves that have a similar looking issue that some of Steve's plants have.... This is an old photo though, so I'd have to go look and see if it is still happening. No clue how that happened. Certainly not sun related as this has always lived under at least 50% shade cloth if not more shade.
This can go really dark, almost black in coloration.
I am really bad at keeping an eye on my Haworthias, not sure why... maybe because generally as long as I water them and do not give them too much sun, they tend to be OK, not great, I definitely have pots with significant die back, but OK in the sense that there are enough offsets to keep them going.
maybe how the pic is taken but that second plant looks a little low in the substrate to me. Might be a rot risk is water gets trapped at the submerged leave bases
Btw, previously how and where did you grow them before moving them to the pots?
