From normal color, this is another type with the same species. ^V^
Thank you for the correction.
Yes it is now classified as Paph godefroyae 'alba' or 'ang thong'. This is the first alba form I have seen after a long time. Both are beautiful. The last time I saw one (live) was the one exhibited by Mr Samran at our Kedah Orchid Show in the late 70s. It caused a sensation at the show with its pure white colour and thick substance, though at the time everyone thought that it was a variety of niveum. Actually Mr Samran brought along a few of the plants to the show.
Thanks for posting.
In Thailand, Thai orchid growers still identify as different type.
It is hard to identify niveum alba and angthong alba because they are both in white color.In addition, it is hard to identify godefroyae alba and wenshanense alba because they are both in light yellow color.
