Ionantha conehead is not a registered variety of ionantha, it is likely just a small collection of similar looking plants that had a slight genetic variation at some point.  The ones I have came from a grex of plants in Guatemala in the 1980s.  Slender, upright tapered shape with typical ionantha bloom
