Another succulent seen with an unopened bud.

This cultivated, ornamental was in a hanging basket.

Id please.

Definitely an Asclepiadaceae …,

Stapelia family, but which, not sure. The flower open would probably help.

Thanks to you and … for the follow up and clues.
On searching, this seems to be Starfish Cactus, Toad Cactus as in Dave’s Garden.
Botanical name Orbea variegata, Syn Stapelia variegata of Asclepiadaceae.
