ID Please! I initially thought this is topsy turvy but now second guessing

Thumb of 2013-05-13/GigiPlumeria/ac140b

Here is the pic of Echeveria runyonii 'topsy turvy', I accidentally sat on this so it looks slightly damaged.

I may be off base, but it just doesn't look quite right. Of course the tag is probably no help...but, looking at other pics of Topsy Turvy, the leaves just aren't quite right.

Hilarious! moonhowl, you are partly right. The first one is echeveria "amoena" and the second looked exactly the same as the 'topsy turvy' pic in your email link before I accidentally sat on it. All the curvy "inverted looking" leaves brook off. (My bad). Hopefully it will be able to recover and bloom.

Green Grin! Even with the damage your second pic showed the general traits of Topsy Turvy....I just didn't see them in the first....glad you have an ID for it...I do hope your plant recovers....I have had a couple that the cats decided to nap on... Grumbling ...but they seemed to take it in stride and recover....Good luck

Hilarious! Thanks, that's what I am hoping...but even now, my topsy turvy looks pretty sad.
