That's really all I had to add to this discussion.

nice EVB--one of the all time classic alba maudiae-type.
without going into the validity of all the names in the "praestans" complex (I don't have firsthand experience with the plant material to really comment), your photo is classic for what is now considered Paph. wilhelminiae. Very small plants, thin succulent leaves, and small but very dark flowers, with a white background in the dorsal. The RHS also recognizes Paph. glanduliferum, which is much larger both plant and flower-wise, and has a yellow background to the blooms.
Oh I see! Well, I have to contact the seller and have a discussion about this!
But thank you all for helping me to figure out this one. I was disturbed when I saw the bloom. It appeared not to be similar to the blooms of P. praestans that I have seen.
Especially, thanks, Jason, you described the plant very accurately! Paph Guru, Eh!
There are more paphs in buds so next time, we will see more!

Hey, I'm not the one who posted the dirty picture. That was Tim.
An alba variety of Paph insigne. Cute!
Breath-taking gorgeous blooms! Must see them in person to truly appreciate their magnificence! The flowers from this plant have longer petals than others that I have seen.
