    I have had paphs that do that too. Next bloom it will be fine. Not sure why some do not open and develop correctly. I think it has to do with water, but that is a guess.

    it looks like it wants to keep water out of it's pouch, so it has a shed roof. I have seen quite a few anomalies over the years but this one is a first for me.

    P. johorensis is another name for P. bullenianum. The pic above is neither.
