    Default New Years Competition

    Hi, everybody.
    As some entertainment for the turn of the year I would like to present a little orchid puzzle.
    Tell me which two orchids you see. There are two different Paphs.
    First Tip:
    Older or very old hybrids.
    Please ask questions to come near to the solution.

    The first from theleft side has no henryanum in the cross

    Tip 2
    The Paph. on the left side is one parent of the Paph. on the right side

    That was supposed to be “that the one on the left...”. I don’t “hate” anything.

    Bruce: forum glitch - when I tried to edit the post, the edit window contained no text whatsoever.

    In my eyes you have taken the hardest step. Here comes tip 3:
    In the one on the left is 50% in the one on the right 25% charlesworthii.
    Altogether there are only 3 species in the one on the left and 5 in the one on the right.

    The answer to the riddle:

    On the left side:

    Paphiopedilum Bingleyense (Keeling 1899) = Paphiopedilum charlesworthii × Paphiopedilum Harrisianum.

    Paph. Harrisianum = Paph. barbatum x Paph. villosum.

    On the right side:

    Paphiopedilum Robin Hood (Sanders[St Albans] 1917) = Paphiopedilum Bingleyense × Paphiopedilum Gaston Bultel (syn Paphiopedilum Baron Schröder).

    Paph. Gaston Bultel = Paph. fairrieanum x Paph. Oenanthum.
    Paph. Oenanthum = Paph. Harrisianum × Paph. insigne
