    The flower form look more like Cleisostoma, the spike and bud very hairy. The leave very thick and a bout 3-5cm long and about 0,7cm wide.

    No, this is a native species of Vietnam. Many areas in Vietnam have this species. It can be nature hybrid I don't know.

    Quite possibly. As you know, there are many natural hybrids out there. Then again, could it be a varient of a species?

    Totally different with all species that I know so I could not find any close species that can explain this is a variety of a species.

    Yup looks more like a Cleisostoma, the nice dark pollina really stand out well, can't help you anyfurther with the id though, may be miniature experts can help you.
