Can someone please help me identify this nib?
Or this type of nib?
The pictures are from a Maped Poivre Blanc mini fountain pen.
Apologies I could not get a closer shot. My camera is terrible and wasn't focusing.

It's a butterfly nib.  Instead of having hard tipping material welded on to the nib, the very tip of the steel has been twisted over to create a writing surface.  Butterfly nibs are generally used on very low quality pens.
