    I am looking for descriptions of varieties of Paph. venustum.

    I manage to collate the following

    Bhutanensis -- Leaves elliptic, deep purple on lower surface.

    Measuresianum -- Leaves with green mottling. Flowers pale yellow with greenreticulation, lack of maroon spots

    Pardinum -- Petals rich yellow with copper coloured hue towards apex

    Rubra -- Petals deep wine-red. Lip wine-red with dark green reticulation

    Spectabile -- Dorsal sepal rosy red at tip. Lip greenish yellow tinged rose.

    Teestaensis -- Leaves sparsely spotted with purple on lower surface. Petals broadand deflexed at apex, brownish pink

    Aureum -- Petals white at apex, yellow with green veins in lower half. Lip yellow with green veins and reticulation

    appreciate if I could get more on any of this

    This is interesting. I think some of mine have these variations.

    I thought I read somewhere that a taxonomist in India described the various forms in a book or journal. Anyone have this or remember it?
