Unless I'm reading it wrongly, there is a mistake in the identification of Yagüe. He is the one with glasses. So it should be:
FLTR: Wolfram Freiherr von Richthofen, Antonio Aranda Mata, Hellmuth Volkmann, Gonzalo Queipo de Llano, Walther von Brauchitsch, Franz Halder, unknown,Juan Yagüe Blanco, and six unknown.

The one to the right of Yagüe, this one:

looks like Rafael García Valiño.
The next one to the right:

could be Camilo Alonso Vega.
What I can tell you is that this picture was probably taken at the reception offered by von Brauchitsch on 7 June. The Spanish generals present at the party were Queipo de Llano, Aranda, Martínez de Campos, Solchaga, García Valiño y Alonso Vega. There were also some Spanish colonels, and the Spanish military attache major (comandante) Rocamora.
