Can anyone identify this little succulent. It has been one of my favorites since I got a small piece in trade.

Beautiful, Jewell. This is a guess but perhaps Stapelia hirsuta?

Wow, what a great looking plant! Stapelia hirsuta was my first thought too. There are two shown in our plant database here: http://garden.org/plants/search/text.php?q=Stapelia+hirsuta&...

It sure is a cool looking flower; here's another site with images for comparison too: http://botany.cz/en/stapelia-hirsuta/
