Echeveria zahnii cv hoveyii. I've seen it listed as E. hoveyii variegata.

Cool! Thanks, bikerdoc! And a plant of mysterious origins since first being described in 1910...

Here is a link that might be useful: E. 'Hoveyi' and E. 'Zahnii' a problem in nomenclature

I believe it is E. 'Decora' (believed to be a spontaneous mutation of E. gibbiflora 'Metallica'). Both 'Hoveyi' & 'Zahnii' have skinnier (longer-looking, but shorter) leaves.

Thanks Rose Marie! Could be--E. 'Hoveyi' was described as a tight rosette, this one is rather elongated.

Which would make it E. hoovbii (nomen nudum), right?

thanks Rosemarie for correcting me. I had an E. hoveyi or at least that is what John Trager called it. It was slow growing and began to revert back to the E. gibbiflora 'Metallica'. Now I have lots of the later and only a small one of the E. 'Decora'
