This is the peloric form of S. cardinalis, without a hood and with equally distributed lobes.  A similar mutation is what probably gave rise to the familiar peloric "trumpets" of the modern hybirds of Sinningia speciosaWhite-flowered peloric plants have also been created.  These forms are among the ancestors of some modern peloric hybrids.
