There is a Cryptocereus/Selenicereus anthonyanus and also another similar one called Epiphyllum anguliger. I can't keep them apart unless I see the bloom, but surely others can.
But it also looks to me that there is a piece of another Epiphyllum in there, perhaps oxypetalum.

Epiphyllum crenatum would be one of those. It does have a yellow/white bloom similar to E. oxypetalum.

E. anguliger is benign:
Ric-Rac Cactus (Epiphyllum anguliger)

S. anthonyanus has little thorns:
Ric Rac Orchid Cactus (Selenicereus anthonyanus)

Then this one should be E. anguliger, correct? Especially, since the bud shows yellow on the outside. I think the ridges on this one are deeper than on E. crenatum, I would think?

You're correct, Ursula. E. crenatum is a more open form of ric rac. It also shows the yellow outer petals when in bud though. It is also more blue/grey leaves than most Epis.

Here's a pic. of mine from 2013 that shows the leaves They appear thicker/ more ridged that the one in question, but that could be growing conditions.
