    Your tag is very out of date. The first orchid listed (Red Glory x Pulsar) has been named: Paphiopedilum Red Czar (Paphiopedilum Pulsar x Paphiopedilum Red Glory)

    The second orchid name you list in the cross is misspelled. It should be: charlesworthii

    These two orchids make the cross:

    Paphiopedilum Iko Iko (Paphiopedilum Red Czar x Paphiopedilum charlesworthii)

    That is your orchid's name. Yes, it is a paph.

    Cheers,
