Huernia rosea ???

Hi all

I purchased this Huernia a few months ago as a small cutting of H. rosea, but now that it has flowered I'm not sure that the label was correct.

I have had a quick look on the web for photos of H. rosea in flower and all are different to my plant

Can someone please help me with a correct id.

With Thanks

That is an unusually beautiful flower.

Michelle, How about doing a Google image search for Huernia namaquensis. I recall Rosemarie linking that name with a picture very similar to yours.

Enjoy that search.

Looks alot like H. Yemenensis as well-
