    Hi Roy, yes, u r on the right track... it is indeed a Primary Hybrid.. and yes two species from the Brachypetalum group and the other from the Cochlopetalum group.

    so just to clarify, a primary hybrid is where two species is used to make a hybrid.

    Ron, good guess but alas, it is named after someone else

    So, Bruce, yes, it is a multi-floral, from the cochlo influence... the other bud is plumping up so it would be interesting to see if it opens up with two flowers at the same time.

    cheers

    OK, concolor has to be one parent I think, that means the other parent would be either P. victoria-mariae or Paphiopedilum kalinae ( victoria-regina v. kalinae ) ie chamberlainianum.
    I say concolor because the flower shape is distinct to concolor as bellatulum, godefroyae & niveum give very different petals visible in most/all progeny, plus color softening.
