    I agree. That type of cross is fairly common and consistently successful. This looks just right for it. A Maudiae type contribution is pretty obvious, and other multifloral albas just aren't as commonly available to make such a cross, and most wouldn't likely have this shape. Clair de Lune x phil alba is as likely as anything, and that general type of breeding is definite.

    Thanks!
    Yes, but probably a little more yellow/green, and with finer striping in the dorsal. Quite similar shape too, but shorter petals.
