Unknown Pink

I received 2 cuttings of this plant in trade 9/22/99.  I noticed the first flower bud 10/12/01.  This was a surprise because I thought my epiphyllums were finished blooming.  The flower opened in the evening of 10/29/01.  It measured about 6.5" across.  The inner petals were funnel-shaped and the outer petals were wide open.  It had a slight fragrance at night.  The flower started to close up on 11/1 and by 11/2 it had passed.  

The flower looks very similar to 'Padre' but the bloom is smaller.  Also, unlike 'Padre' the bud is not yellow.
