Jon you have one parent correct. The other parent is not obvious. It is a cross that is not seen frequently and I can understand why from seeing the flower.

I am questioning if the plant was labeled correctly. Someone on another forum sent me a pic of the cross that this is suppose to be and it sure looks different than this flower.

I purchased it as Paph Unique (roth x fairrieanum)

Hard to believe! I see it listed on Orchids of Los Osos site. What do you think, Lance?

What do the leaves look like? I don't see any roth in the flower but I guess a certain % would take strictly after the fair. parent & this is one! (if it's labeled correctly)

I'm not Lance, but that ain't roth x fairrieanum, either. Something in the barbatum group (lawrencianum?) x fairrieanum is my guess.
