    Nice one, Gin - really warty!

    Lots of suk in that one, but I don't see the cross as registered.

    Great recovery!

    Hi, I might have it...

    There's a Paph. Laser, but I don't see a clutivar 'Impressive,' although I'm betting that's what it is. It's very similar to yours. Likewise, Paph. Macabre is a dead ringer for yours, and there's no 'Wings' that I can find, but again I'd be willing to bet the second names are merely cultivars and someone got lazy in the labeling.

    I haven't searched on Paph. Laser x Macabre (it's not registered), but you might find something with that.

    G' Luck!

    I bloomed a macabre not too long ago and it looked very much like that. I'll have to see if I can find those pics. That is a lovely paph!

    that is one of the most appealing coloratums I've ever seen! very well-balanced, crisp, and well-warted, always a plus in the paph world.

    the cross is assuredly Laser x Macabre, the other names must be cultivars. not registered yet according to the RHS database.
