Stapeliad Expert Needed

There are some amazing carrion plants out there, in the Asclepiadaceae family. Including the Asclepiads too! Who knew the Milkweed Family and the Stapeliads were related.

Anyway, so on the recent foray into the jungles of Florida, we found this stunning stapeliad at a nursery and we snapped up a few for parenting. We should have plants ready if we’re successful, in a year or so. I took this picture of the tiny bloom with my cell phone camera and this was the best I could get it while on the road.

Now, what is it? It was totally mislabeled. So I looked it up on Martin Heigan, the stapeliad king’s, flickr feed and I can’t find it at all. Any Stapeliad experts out there who have a clue?
