    I agree another gorgeous one there from outerspace. I like the striping in the dorsal sepal and the pouch and nice flat petals there.

    Cool! I really like that one. It would make a great parent in some alba crosses....I can see an alba Maudiae crossed with this...probably already been done.

    Very nice Paphiopedilum! What's the spread of the flower?

    This plant is known as Paphiopedilum venustum f. measuresianum...
