Help Identifying Citrus

Hello all,

I was hoping I could get your help in identifying some citrus.

The first photo (with the yellow fruit) I believe it to be a Eureka or Lisbon lemon. In these pictures the fruit is extremely ripe and thus a deep yellow. People have suggested it to be a Meyer lemon. However, I have a verifiable Meyer Lemon tree and in cross referencing it with this tree, the scent of the fruit is completely different and the rind and peel on the Meyer lemon are much thinner, as it typically is. Please let me know what you think.

The second and third photos are purportedly a lime tree. My sister purchased it long ago from Costco. It was recently reset after growing way way too tall. It unfortunately doesn't have any fruit or blooms right now but she recalled it having no seeds. I'm thinking it could be a persian/tahitian/bearss lime but I have read those are nearly thornless. Problem is that this tree definitely has thorns. They are tiny but SHARP. I've included a picture of the thorns as well.

Hoping some citrus experts can help me identify the second tree without having to wait until it fruits. I'm dying of curiosity!
