Sorry Bruce, but I have to smile after reading your advice ... because you reminded me what I can hear from sellers if I ask anything about this orchid. I think that seller doesn't remember that he had it. Here orchids come with tags where we can read..."indoor plant". Can you imagine that? I have never met a seller who knows more than me ...although my knowledge about orchids is modest.
Thanks for trying to help.
There are dozens of hybrids of this general appearance, and since Paphs are not cloned every plant is different. Usually, the only NoID Paphs that can ever be identified with some certainty are primary hybrids, which this is not. No matter how much someone thinks it looks like a particular cross, there are many other crosses it could be.
I knew that it is hybrid and is difficult for ID.
Knowing that it probably contains part of P. insigne and Pap Cocoa Lovely is enough.
You helped me again, thanks
