    I found this thread just recently and so hope that my post is not too late to add to the discussion. It obviously is a hybrid of Spath plicata[a very variable specie] and I think, Spath kimbaliana - judging from its overall colour and especially the shape of the lip and the red-purple colour at the tip . Incidentally if you have different varieties of spathoglottis growing close together they may naturally hybridise and seeds germinate around the clumps of spath esp on moss-covered rocks and bricks. We've had them happen in our gardens. So once in a while look for seedlings near your plants. Most of the hybrids found today happened in this way and that's why many of them are not registered.

    hi yew,
    thanks for the info, seems like the spath is easy to hybridise then, that really explains the color variety.
