    Default Paph Claire de Lune

    That is what written on the tag, but I have a nagging doubt that maybe this one is not it?

    Looks like a claire de lune to me. She looks like she is not quite all the way open but looks great. I absolutely love the green paphs! Great orchid and thanks for sharing.

    nice paph! It is certainly consistent with Clair de Lune--the warts on the petal faces is reflective of curtisii in its background (which figures prominently in Clair de Lune). Now the question is whether or not it is the famous awarded clone 'Edgard Van Belle'.

    It's a lovely flower in both pics! But, Jason, yours looks like Elizabeth the first sitting for her royal portrait!
