A Cory. Elephantidens?

cactuspolecat(Tasmania Aust)December 30, 2005

This one was bought nameless, and I've watched & waited patiently for this flower to open. It's a form of elephantidens, (bumamma maybe?). I was hoping it would be the red flowered form, but I'm happy with these yellow/pink flowers.

It does look like C. bumamma. Regular C. elephantidens don't have the fine radials all round the areole like that. I think the flower's nice.
