An Echeveria dilemma

I thought I was growing an Echeveria. A few days ago it started blooming. The flowers have freckles. Now I'm not sure.

It's in a 3" pot.

Your thoughts and any help with an ID will be appreciated.

I think it's Echeveria derenbergii.

Rodiq,

I'm now certain it's a hybrid and suspect E. derenbergii is one of the parents. I think the spots on the flowers come from a Graptopetalum.

If a Graptoveria, which one???

I'm stumped.

Anyway, I still believe it's an Echeveria.

Thanks, Rodiq, for the link. Several members of other forums think the plant in your link is the one. I think I agree also. x Graptoveria 'A Grin One'.
