    Default Paph. villosum var annamense

    I bought this in bud a short while ago, last thing I thought I would buy, a Paph but did so because my collection is starting to grow again & this is a rarity at the moment.

    One of the best species that I ever seen so beautiful Roy I hope I have it in my collection as the plant leaves almost similar difficult to tell us until it's in flower.

    Having just read a paper, including pics, of P. villosum in Vietnam it appears evident that this villosum is NOT var annamense. In the main, it strongly resembles P. villosum var villosum. There are small differences though. There are pics that show, Fig. 18-20. Variants of P. villosum var. villosum, which exhibit obvious morphological deviation toward var. annamense. © L. Averyanov
    It is quite possible that with little care or knowledge, that villosum v. villosum has been crossed with villosum with a var annamense variant or a similar small flowered villosum. I would suggest that leaving var annamense on the label is incorrect. Waiting till the flower fully matures & what it ends up like is wether the label is var villosum or just villosum.

    To me no matter what ever it is I still admire the beauty of this species.
