    It's a nice looking paph but unfortunately without a tag you will never know for sure the name. There are just too many Paphs that look so similar you could never be sure.

    Very pretty - You might want to do some research on standard-complex paphs - that may give you some photos to compare yours with. Good luck! I know how frustrating it is to have a beautiful orchid with no tag.

    Perhaps contact the seller and see if there are others similar in bloom now. I know when we were selling commercially, we would have several of the same crosses in bloom/ bud at the same time. Good luck.

    cheers,
