No, but the plants is large Ralph :lol: the flowers are not that different from eichmanii or certain forms of biformis in size, but are of a different type, the Epiphyllums found in El Salvador have very similar flowers and you do wonder if this is some sort of natural hybrid especially seeing the DNA is outside mainstream Disocactus.
Pseudorhipsalis was once within Disocactus and maybe there is a connection there also.
