That is an unusual one. It's leaves look so thick, much thicker than the photos of A. isthmensis that I viewed.

As good a guess as any I suppose, but these weird dwarf forms are pretty atypical for any species. Take a look at a plant sometimes called Agave potatorum Shoji Raijin. There are also a number of variegated versions of the dwarf agaves, some also with Japanese names, which may be related to your plant. For what it's worth, potatorum and isthmensis are really similar agaves, especially some of the smaller offsetting forms, and it's not so easy to know the difference.

It looks VERY similar to Shoji Raijin!!!! It has the thicker leaves unlike the butterfly agave.
