    Your Pink Panther is nicer than my Pink Panther. Maybe mine is mis-labeled???

    I could have mis-identified mine! Would welcome correction if I'm wrong...

    No. I think yours with the spots looks panther-like. Nothing about mine suggests a panther by looking at it. Yours is labeled correctly.

    Did a quick google search for it and it seems most of them look more like yours than mine so I think I've probably mis-identified it... not all panthers have spots!!

    Perhaps someone can help me properly identify mine?

    They may both be Tol. Pink Panther (Purple Envy x Misty Pink), Tolumnia crosses can be highly variable (look up Tol. Jairak Rainbow for an illustration of this) and Pink Panther refers to any progeny of the same grex. Harvey's looks like all the ones I've seen sold in the US, which given the lack of variation are probably mericlones, and by look anyway Eeyore's could easily come from the same hybrid parents. Eeyore, if you choose not to accept the label under which you bought it then you'll never have an ID, the number of hybrids and aforementioned variability make visual ID of hybrids in this group essentially impossible...

    Very, very nice flowers, by the way! That's one of my favorite Tolumnias I've seen. Makes me want to visit a particular nursery near me that grows a lot of these...

    I love it, no matter what name it has. I've been looking around in Google and I think both are 'Pink Panther'.
