    Default Mystery Paph

    Jason,
    here's a couple more pics. The first is from the vendor's catalog, the second was a possibility I found a while back, but of course cannot recall where I found it.

    The last photo looks like it could be the same cross. One of them has a prominently striped dorsal, and the petal patterning is also more similar. Now I'm imagining perhaps a little micranthum in that petal. Somebody shoot me.

    Are you really really sure an email to this vendor won't have any chance of finding the name? I've been surprised before at which records can be lying around. Earlier this year I went on a wild goose chase for a white ascocenda I have with a bogus Thai name. The vendor was actually able to trace the parentage.

    Heather, whatever it is it is pretty and since it's a hybrid it may forever be a NOID. It is one of the many reasons why I like species.
