At first glance, I couldn't figure out what the photo was of. But they are cactus blooms?!

Hi @Lavanda, the name was misspelled, that is why you couldn't find it!

Here is the entry. And what a great picture!

yeah, like google..... Shrug!
My suggestion is to search by genus name only, and then check for a species that is similar, which is what I did in your case. I knew 'Parodia' was a valid genus name, so I let the database take it from there...
