Couldn't pass on this little gem when I saw it a month ago, it's a miniature, although a bit bigger than my helenae. Not surprising why it's not use often in hybridizing, the color is kinda drab compared to helenae:

the pouch stands out on the petal/sepals quite nicely
perhaps it is the shape of the flower the as kept it from being hybridized? but helenae hybrids has still very new, maybe these will be used next for dark blooms...

I agree that the pink pouch, yellow staminode, red petals & dorsal, plus green top is really nice combination.

I have seen one in the US. It had a more ruffly dorsal sepal and the flower was closer in size to henrianum rather than helenae.
