    Very close to Phalaenopsis pulcherrima, the difference is made at the level of the very small lobules for Phalaenopsis regnieriana and more especially by its callus clearly bifide.
    Great photos, cute flowers.

    Thanks, Eric, for the link. But given the large variation in doritis pulcherrima, wouldn't this perhaps fall under that variation? It is after all, just a minute difference in the callus detail.

    yes, thats a good point!
    the term "variation" usually refers to differences in coloration, floral parts etc., not so much to a consistent callus.

    That might be the case here, but in the case of paphiopedilums, the species status of many taxa are still being debated by different authors as the differences lies in in small differences in the staminode (paph bullenianum complex: bullenianum, tortipetalum, johorense, celebensis etc). If differences in flower colouration can be considered as variation of the same species, I personally don't see why tiny morphological differences like callus shape should be considered any differently. Just my 2 cents, but let's leave that to the taxonomists eh
