I guess I just like weird flowers!

Ramón, yes, it was Kopf! They said to email them for a list of Paphs which they are currently working on - they might have my coccineum!

Theresa, there were some complex Paphs, but surprisingly not that many away from Ratcliffe's stand. The majority of the Paphs there were species or primarly (and near primary) hybrids.

Ernie, I wish I knew what that last one was - perhaps I will be able to find out. I think you may be right about niveum, but I don't know enough about the multiflorals to hazard even a guess. Thanks for your thoughts!

Eric, you're spot on. The top one is a Scaphosepalum swertifolium. The second one is labelled as Pl. schiedei. I know it as ornata and had never heard schiedei before. Both of these plants are extremely well grown. The Scaph has about 6 spikes, and the Pleuro has about 4. I'm hoping that I'll get to see multiple flowers at once - then I'll get some more photos.
