    Default Paphiopedilum looking for a name

    This paph came home with me this week end even though the greenhouse had lost it's label. It was just to pretty and "spring like" to leave behind.
    Anyone happen to recognize it? Thanks,
    Al

    It has paph insigne var sanderae or var sanderianum in it. It almost looks like a pure insigne var sanderae except the white hallow on the dorsal is too wide.

    possibly insigne x villosum? insigne x spicerianum?

    Fren is probably right. I am no help at all with Paphs.

    I would have said, "Complex Bulldog type Paph"

    Thankyou everyone, I can at least put a label with it as to it's possible i.d.
    Sure wish I could figure out how to post larger pictures. Mine lose so much clarity when I have to down size them for posting.

    Upload them somewhere else and then post the URL when you click the picture icon on your post. I do this all the time.

    nice greenish-yellow...as mentioned before it seems to have a large dose of insigne sanderae in it but it really is impossible to nail down the exact hybrid. primary hybrids you have a shot but with the complex types it could be just about anything.
