At first I thought it looked like tipo, but on closer inspection it may be rubra after all.

You see, rubras tend to be very dark throughout with no light areas at the margins. Also the white eyes tend to be smaller. But if we consider some backlit light from behind and the angle of the shot, the flower can be mistaken for the light form.
