Definitely not S. parviflora. Not sure about this one though, the flowers appear to be quite smooth (not scabrous) which is not a common feature (need to check with a hand lens). The bright reddish colouration of the top of the flowers and the long triangular free points on the synsepalum are also interesting features.
