I'd say yes, that is Trichocereus Bridgesii (agree it looks like it has some pach traits too). It looks a lot like Slizes' "playa Bonita" or "hotel" cuttings. Do you have any more info you want to share about these?

According to my source, originally purchased as "fat bridgesii" in Melbourne, about 10 years ago. I only recently acquired a cutting. I don't think it's really bridgesii, based on the large number of ribs. 

The tip I loosely planted (must be around 20cm diameter!) has sprouted about a dozen flower pups, instead of roots. What a bizarre, beautiful alien!

Melbourne, and more specifically: Fitzroy. 
Ring any bells?
