    Otherwise known as Paph villosum var annamense - from the place where found. I prefer to call it a distinct species, since it is so distinctly6 coloured, and is also different in being rather smaller in all parts, than the type species ( properly known as P.villosum var villosum).

    An interesting comment ; i had never thought of Mme Pompadour being spotted. You know that the dendrobiums they grow in the Far East for cut flowers - the kind they leave on your pillow
    . In the hotels, and have on the dinner table on the cruise p, are called Mme Pompadour (type) ? They are not spotted at all...
    But I do agree that the Regency period ladies with their great ball gowns, and hairdo's 3 feet high did wear little black patches. I wonder how they could imagine that they improved their looks ?

    Wonderful, clear colors and markings. The depth of yellows and magentas is truly stunning. And there we are in the taxonomy section of Hades - I wonder if which of Dante's Circles that would qualify for? (Taxonomists, I mean, not those of us who struggle with their vicissitudes).
