M.gigantea normally has yellowish - green flowers.
Lau made the L 1118 from Huejuquilla - San Jaun Capistrano, a plant with pink flowers. Hunt refered this collection to M.gigantea which Lau disagreeded with.
Lau later made the collection L 1529, M.wagneriana from San Juan Capistrano. I believe that L 1118 and your plant above is M.wagneriana.

M. gigantea? Lau_1111

Lau 1118, a plant given to me last year by Robby. It recently flowered but I did not have my camera at the time

]M. gigantea? L_152911

Here is my plant that is labelled as Lau 1118, and to me as well it is closer to wagneriana than gigantea.

M. gigantea? 257-gi10
One of the characteristics of wagneriana is the curling upper central spine, I believe. Having seen a number of plants of the pettersonii, wagneriana and heyderi affinities in habitat, I think it can sometimes be very difficult to separate them. Unfortunately I didn't go to gigantea land, which would perhaps have been useful to add to the confusion!

This is my plant of L 1118 in flower today, 31-5-10.
I would say that this is a match for you plant.
