Paph. NOID (soon to be ID'd by vendor... hopefully)

Hello all,

I recently purchased this nameless Paph. from a German nursery (Rengers) and now that it's flowered, I have sent them a picture, hoping they can ID it. They usually only sell species and primary or secondary hybrids, so the odds are good that this is not some random complex hybrid.

I really like the "hooks" at the bottom of the staminode: (click to enlarge!)

I think it might be Paph. Auroreum (lawrenceanum x venustum).
Most plants from this batch look very much like venustum, leaf-wise, but mine is leaning a bit more to lawrenceanum.

Here is a picture of the whole plant (unfortunately my black background is not big enough to fit the whole plant):

Anyway, I hope I will get a positive ID on this one from the vendor! If not, it will just be a very nice NOID.

P.S.: I made the mistake of spraying tapwater on the plant, that's where those white blemishes are from. :mad:
