    The first one is a complex hybrid ( bulldog, I hate this name ) Paph & the name would be near impossible to obtain. The second one looks a lot like Paph. villosum var. boxallii though I think the flower is a little deformed. Should be better next time. It may be a hybrid from villosum but the other parent I'd only be guessing at.

    I agree with Roy the second flower is hybrids looked at the leaves very broad in contrast villosum very small 2-4 cm in diameter.
