Could this be gibbaeum?

I recently bought a mesemb that was marked glottyphytum (sorry if I misspelled that) but it looks more like gibbaeum to me! But could gibbaeum have an orange flower?? Can anyone identify this mesemb?

Thanks, Ro! I have a song in my heart and I gotta sing!

cybunnies, every Gibbaeum I've seen has purple, pink or white flowers. Glotts do have big yellow blooms so based on the color and shape, I would guess oligocarpum. I've been wrong before, though!

Why are the leaves so small and not stretched out?
