    It is not currently in bloom, but based on the reflections on the dark areas I would have to say they are actually bumps an the sepals.

    Sorry, I do not know that at this time. I will try to find out though.

    I do have another paph that has AGxTJ as one of the parents so maybe that is the way it was done. The other parent on this one is Black Cherry x Mario Palmyre. Here is a pic of that one.

    Is it Alma Gavaert or Alma Gevaert?

    I see it both ways on the net and the second way on the RHS site.

    It's the latter, Steven. Once the name gets misspelled, the Web mushrooms the problem until you don't know which one is right.
