Yesterday a new book about the albine forms of the genus Paphiopedilum came from the editor. It is really only a iconography, a book full of pictures, which shows the variability of the genus.
Also shown the 2 albine forms of Phragmipedium and some of Cypripedium are
Just this time it is not available in the normal bookstores, only by Ebay in Germany. But I think there will be also a way to bring this book to USA

Is it in English or German? If it's English, I'd definitely buy a copy if it were available in the US. If German, I'd probably still buy a copy.

besseae... and there has been rumors from last century about a schlimii albino as well, not to mention kovachii "album" that was supposed to exist...

Phragmipedium besseae forma flava and the greenish Phrag. longifolium.
No true white Phrag. schlimii is known only the forma albiflorum with a red opening of the lip.
There a rumors also that there exist a true greenish Phrag. caudatum, but it was never seen, the same is with the whitish Phrag. kovachii. Only a bud was shown but the flower in the end was not an albino.

The foreword was in english, german, chinese, japanese, thai and polish. The chapters include only the correct name of the forma and the pictures, not so much more.
Here the typical beginning of a chapter



Best greetings

I found it on the German EBay, but have no idea how to order it, or if they can/will ship it to the US. The price seems very reasonable too!

Thank you Olaf
Very sharp info about albino slippers.
We are still waiting for a good picture or life clone of the P. kovachii aldum. Do you think it is a white colored PK?
Best regards
