    Question Help ID this NoID

    Here are a couple of pictures of my little noid paph. The pictures were taken in natural light and the bloom photo is very true to color. The blossom is very hairy. Can anyone ID? It is a very reliable bloomer.

    That looks like one of those P. delanatii hybrids. Very pretty blooms though!
    It might be P. Delophyllum (delenatii x glaucophyllum). A few pictures of this cross are included here so you can compare. A previous thread on this forum also has a picture of this cross but with more intense pink coloration (paph delophyllum posted by paphanatic)
    Another possibility is the P. Dellaina (delenatii x chamberlainianum) although I am partial with the Delophyllum.

    Default P. Dellaina

    A picture of the other possibility.

    I was thinking Paph. Dellaina, which is delenatii x chamberlainianum. (Chamberlainianum is also known by some as liemianum.)

    Glaucophyllum and chamberlainianum are very similar species and are very close in appearance. The clearest distinction between them is in the leaves. Chamberlianum has dark mottling on the undersides of the leaves, where glaucophllyum has no mottling at all. That won't help much here, however, as delenatii also has the mottling on both sides of the leaves.

    I don't think you'll get much closer than this, Diane, but here's another Dellaina photo. (I have one, but this isn't a picture of mine.)

    Hmmm Two pictures look very similar to my plant, the one posted by Julie, and the middle one posted by Hoa. So at least it is narrowed down. Thanks guys!

    It was a tough call. I could not really decide which one either so I mentioned both! Hehe!
    Cheers. Hoa.

    Delophyllum and Dellaina, both very similar if you allow for variation in each. It'll be hard to tell exactly which it is. Gina Short is also in the mix (Pinocchio x delenatii).

    Now that I think back on the purchase, which was about 2 years ago, the name glaucophyllum rings a faint bell...

    If the person or store you got the orchid from knew what it was back then, then you might try contacting them (if that's possible). I doubt anyone would have both (or all three so similar crosses.)

    Just a thought...
