The seller also told me Malaysia violacea relatively has small flower.Thanks again.
    i am no phal expert but i do see what is Eric trying to say. to me a the two lower sepals of violacea is like doing a leg split while the two lower sepals of bellina is just like standing with your legs wide open. hahahahaha.......the analogy is just from my own imagination, that is why in the third pic posting, the second and especially the fourth pic have the strong characteristic of violacea.
