Congrats for flowering this very, very rare species. 👌
According to O. Gruss this album form was described as P. tonsum forma alboviride.

i always wonder where to look for the authoritative sources for varieties and forms... was that published in his recent slipper volume, or elsewhere?

i picked 'album' after consulting orchid wiz names, and of course Sam's tag says album ... always looking for the most up to date info...

Good to see this in bloom. Well done.
Thank you for sharing this nice and rare albinistic form!

I'm with Rudolf - if you like albino Paphs Gruss (2008) is indispensable. Not much text, but (mostly) glorious photos, actually you could consider it Paphio-porn. And I think, Leslie, also at some point used it as a coffee table book, that he just casually let drape his table, when inviting friends over! 🤭

thanx all for the positive feedback.. hoping my luck with it over the past year continues into the next... more of an 'in the right place in the greenhouse to make it happy' situation... :)
