    Yes Randy, something in the flowers just scream Paphiopedilum haynaldianum... But there is something quite odd about the colouration. I mean, very few anthocyanin pigments (responsible for reds, browns and purples) are apparent. This makes me think that if this really is a natural hybrid, then maybe, one of the parents is an albino.

    Hey Jordan, you just gave me my first chuckle for the day! However, I disdain the thought of having an orchid named after me, dunno why really... Or maybe because I just want to be different, since most orchidologists and many orchid fanciers in history have already had orchids named after them. This is in direct contrast to some of my orchid-crazed buddies, who already have their names immortalized by the orchids that carry their names- Bulbophyllum cootesii, Dendrochilum cootesii, Macropodanthus cootesii, Thrixspermum cootesii, Bulbophyllum ravanii, Dendrobium ravanii, Grammatophyllum ravanii, etc. Heck, even our very own Ron (waling-waling) will have an orchid named after him very soon! Would you believe that?!
