Anyone recognise this variety of cactus?

I hope to learn what climate zone it might fall into so I know when I have to bring it into the house for the winter...

It is in an approx 6" pot and stands 6-8" tall
Any help will be much appreciated!

Echinopsis of some sort is my guess. Not hardy much below 32F, and then only if kept very dry. And it looks very dry. (Acute ribs.)

Thank you,

I was just given two of these lovely cactus which were kept outdoors and normally moved inside for the winter. I have an unheated sunroom where I had hoped I could house them but it will definitely get below 32f.
