I don't have this plant, but I saw a pic of it online and it's something I would really love to have.

Thank You!

The species is gibbiflora(or at least the parent),
the type/variant is what you call ruffled, and the cultivar ive seen been called "chocolate" or "coral reef".

There are literally dozens of ruffled Echeveria cultivars and identifying most from an underside view would be next to impossible. Possibly the best known and probably the most common in cultivation is one called "Mauna Loa" which was selected by Dick Wright.

More about that plant here:

It is also the parent of various ruffled and carunculated hybrids.
