    Actually, that's Paph. Natasha Von Fox (victoria-reginae [syn. chamberlainianum] x liemianum). It's my only pure Cochlopetalum plant. I love its rich lip colour and cute little halo! I think it got the best of both parents.

    I posted a pic of it before, but I wasn't happy with the pic. So I took a new one:

    Wait a minute. Now that RHS recognizes chamberlainianum as 'victoria-reginae', wouldn't that make Salvador Dali the same as Natasha Von Fox? Which name is to be preferred? Ugh!

    Very nice lttle critter.Shame i killed mine.
    There are so many paphs that look very similar & i find it almost impossible to tell the difference.I have a Paph chamberlainianum var liemianum(about to flower methinks) & this is also called Paph liemianum.Piccies looks identical to my original plant
    I just put down whats on the lable.

    Yeah. The Cochlos are very difficult to tell apart. Paph. liemianum is distinguished by the white "halo" on the dorsal sepal, and Paph. victoria-mariae is a more elongated shape than the rest of them. But I'm never quite sure how to tell victoria-reginae (chamberlainianum?), glaucophyllum, moquettianum, and primulinum apart from one another. Unless it's a var. kalinae or var. flavum. But now I'm rambling.

    Be sure to post a pic of your liemianum/chamberlainianum var. liemianum!
