Cute ! I guess it is not niveum x godefroyae but thaianum x godefroyae.
Why? The green staminode and the small flower would fit.
Nevertheless beautiful.

I like this lovely flower especially its green staminode.

Werner, not necessarily. There are P. godefroay with yellow as well as with green markings on the staminode. As to the size I grow P. Greyii too and its flower size is closer to P. niveum than to P. godefroyae. I wouldn't question it to be a normal P. Greyii (P. niveum x P. godefroyae).

No not just thoughts, Werner. Here it is, a photo of my late Paph. godefroyae var. leucochilum with green markings on the staminode. I wouldn't claim such things without experience or any kind of evidence. (I hope, merc will pardon me, that I captured his thread with my photo).

P. godefroyae var. leucochilum with green markings on the staminode aren't that uncommon as you may think. Some photos more you can find in the image section of Stephen Manza's site Slipperorchids, for excample C. Strömpl, Marcus Tan, Donna Phillips and Ross Hella. I don't know whether its only a phenomenon which occurs only with var. leucochilum or not?
