I've got two of these labeled spicerianum #2 x sib (Wavy Gravy x Bostocks). The first flowered and I new it wasn't a true spicerianum so the vendor sent a replacement. But this looks too bulky for a true species. What are your thoughts?

First one is definitely not a spicerianum. Maybe a primary hybrid with charlesworthii, possible with a complex. The second one is a spicerianum for sure. The ribbed pouch might be a one off, though one of the parent is named 'Wavy Gravy' (!). Only know when it reblooms.

Blooming again! The pouch isn't rippled like last year.
Such things are often the result of influences from outside/cultur conditions during the bud/flower development. Now she's a very nice one.
