How the leaves look like? Plain green or with reddish underside? It looks like the hookerae x volonteanum that were around a while back....

Hookerae has soft green leaves, with nearly no purple underside. Volonteanum has very thick leaves that are nearly completely red underside...
I have the same cross Xavier and I suspected the same. I could never find a good picture of the Joan ID plant.
Very nice.Hook x volonteanum is an often seen cross, hook has rounder form but volonteanum has darker colour , aim could be round dark flower.I only have 2 pure volonteanums, one is in spike, as Xavier said,with dark, narrower, straight hard leaves.
