Maybe. Looks like it.

is it being grown as an outdoor plant, or houseplant? I don't think the cold hardy Ehinocereus spp. do well as houseplants. I am not a cactus expert, but so many of them look so much alike to me. I don't know, how would you differentiate? Of the other Echinocereus spp., it looks like viridiflorus, but how do you know it is Echinocereus to begin with? This is where I need some major teaching... is the the areole shape/color/thorns, rib construction, ???

I was surprised to find that viridiflorus is such a precocious bloomer... although with these small seedlings, the bloom was only half size,
