Paph. concolor var. striatum isn't an officially described and accepted name

As in so many cases Rudolf might have a point here - strict botanically speaking, the striatums might just be sunk into synonymity with the typical form.

But Kate, do not despair: we all know, what is meant by 'striatum'...and although it might be more precise to talk of a form (instead of a variety) as there are no other major morphological differences than the clearly delineated, middle striation of the dorsal and the petals to set it apart from the typical form, you might be home scot free by adding Hort. to the designation of your plant - meaning that its a hortonomical and not a botanical epithet:
Paph. concolor fma. striatum (Hort.).

'Keine Hexerei, nur Behändigheit' as they say South of the (danish) border! :cool:

Thank you for the correction, I will post as Paph. concolor fma. striatum (Hort.) in the future. :)
