    I like the spots inside the pouch. Very interesting species. Maybe Jason, if you put a pic of this next to yours, it will get jealous and start showing off for you! lol!

    There is some debate as to whether or not this is actually wardii. I am posting a pic of the foliage in hopes of figuring it out.

    wardii has distinctive foliage, which is very similar however to venustum. that foliage does not look like wardii/venustum to me. i do like jeff's suggestion, however. the petal spots are clearly from sukhakulii, and the venustum would contribute the prominent pouch veining. and the alba venustum would explain why the petal tips don't show any evidence of the neon pink/red (venustum alba petal tips are yellow). and this combination would explain the small dorsal.

    then again, if what he said was true, you might have an "x wardii" on your hands!
