It does not look like Hylocereus undatus. (I have a lot of books on cacti.) Say it's H. costaricensis, since that has 3-4 spines, ribs without horns, etc.

Sure. The advantage to having a lot of books to consult is that it makes me look like I know more than I really do .....

Add Google to the mix, and the willingness to plow through and do some bonafide research, one can appear to be a genius! ;D ;D
