    What is this???

    To me looks like Macradenia brassavolae or rubescens. I had this charming little plant many years ago (brassavolae).

    Paphiopedilum lawrenceanum

    Looks very much like Paph. Gowerianum (lawrenceanum X curtisii). I have a plant of this cross, remade by Vacherot & Lecoufle some 50 years ago, but unfortunately not currently in flower.
