I received this in a swap.

The trader said it is Lepismium houlletianum:

I disagree and think it may be epiphyllum anguligar:
But the lobes are not as deep as anguligar.

Any ideas?

I do believe you are correct. As far as the deep angularity of the leaves, young leaves do not seem to be as deep as older ones in my opinion.

I think it is a Ric-Rac cactus as well. Check in Plant Files...
It is in the Orchid cactus family.

These have the alternating "bumps" on the stalks...There is another kind where the ric-racs are opposite each other...

VERY easy to root from stem cuttings...OR--a whole section of the plant, should one break off...
The blooms are beautiful!
