    Actually, Lynda, that's a good guess! There aren't many Paphs that offer up the pink pouch. I would bet that henryanum would provide more spots on the dorsal and petals...but then I'm still trying to figure out what this dude is.

    sorry to join late...the hint of the species/variety that is a MULTIFLORAL entity, combined with the pink spoon shaped petals, suggests to me that the lowii complex is involved. now, there are two other entities closely related to lowii whose stature is controversial. last I heard lynniae is an accepted species, while richardianum may not be. but then again, who knows these days?
