Succulent flower

This beautiful little succulent is currently flowering – can anyone identify it and provide any more information about it? For example, is it from South Africa? If so, where? Karoo?

    Faucaria something. Too dark to go and read the rest of my label.

    It is a Faucaria family probably subintegra,mostly found in the Eastern cape with some extending into the Karoos. They grow among rocks in shallow soil in the shade of xerophytic shrubs(drought adapted plant forms)
