someone knows ?
There is no photo.
I think he's just asking if anyone know any information about this "species"..
I don't.. haven't heard of it before, and google search didn't come up with any information.
Never heard of it!
I agree with Jorch, Hakone is asking if anyone has.
Sorry, has someone information about this kultivar?
paph. trantuanii = paph. gatrixianum x callosum ?
I think Olaf know a bit about this species. Maybe he'll see this and wiegh in. Species or natural hybrid?
How about this one?
Olaf spoke to my society in June and he showed us pictures of that species and said it is now in cultivation, in its native country probably. Not described
doesn't look like gratrix. x call. to me, at least not what I'd expect. If you said gratrix. x barb.? or barb. x henry? .... well OK
you are right , paph. barbigerum var. lockianum x paph. henryanum = x aspersum
Looks like gratrix X henry to me but the post I got it from, Braum calls it a species.
THe first shown picture is the described Paph. trantuanhii.
It cannot be the cross between gratrixianum and henryanum, especially when you look to the small growth.
The blackish one is not in trade and I get only the picture some years ago and I am waiting for further informations.
Thanks Olaf, So you agree Paph hrantuanhii is a valid species? About the blackish one, I'm very interested in it! Especially if it turns out to be a species. It's so small and unique with the greenish/white synsepal, broad white border on the dorsal and blaskish/purple the rest of it
My tnedency is going to a distinct species, but I have seen only pictures not living plants.
A second problem is that also natural hybrids exist in the region of this species. So we must see more plants and flowers to imagine the variability of the species and also to define the borders to the other species and hybrids.
Thanks for starting this thread Hakone!
here is the original post from another website. I hope this helps
Oh, I like that one!! That species looks even smaller than Paph helenae! I have not seen that one before.
it is always interesting to see this picture of the black one. I get the picture 2 years ago from Vietnam. A friend made this. I used the picture in my presentations and also on one orchid forum, but now the picture is going around. The same is with the other picture on the vietnamese page. I get it 3 years ago for analyzing together with some other pictures fro the habitata.
I thought I'd seen this photo before. Not sure where, though, but probably on another forum -- the other slipper forum?
