Thanks! I also appreciate your help with the ID, I don't know cacti very well. =)

Ah, you are right, your cactus is rounded. Beautiful photo!

The flower is certainly similar to those of Cereus peruvianus, but the cactus itself looks different. I'm pretty sure that my flower belongs to the Cereus genus at least. Thanks for the help!

Those look like cereus peruvianus cactus flowers.
