    browsing through the archives...not to stir the pot, but just to throw in another name: Paph. Helvetia (chamberlainianum x philippinense). I have a great deal of trouble telling those cochlo x phil apart. I would expect Shireen to have more of a pink pouch (glaucophyllum & moquettianum both have decidedly pink pouches), and those made with moquett to have some of those spotted maculations on the dorsal. But I really can't say for certain unless a name jogs the memory and rings a bell...

    (I don't see a record for phil x victoria-mariae, but that's another cross that it *could* be)

    Helvetia's it!

    Shireen never sounded familiar to me but I figured it must be right from Sue's pictures.

    But Helvetia. Helvetia! Yes!

    Woo hoo!!!

    Thank you SIR!

    Jason, you maybe correct! Since I'm very bad with colors, I just go with the shapes overall. And to me, all those Cochlopetalum hybrids almost look alike especially with philippinense crosses.
