Sorry for the Christmas disappointment but that's what I intended to say. In my eyes one parent is from the Paph appletonianum/bulleanum complexe...It is not Paph. parnatanum. It is a hybrid but which?...

Hello Olaf and Rudolf,Dear Rudolph,
I agree with you, it is an appletonianum-hybrid.
With the name it is very clear.
William Cavestro was faster in the publishing of his description with the name Paph. parnatanum.
Our description was ready half an year before, but we had difficulties with our journal and so the description as Paph. usitanum comes too late.
So the name Paph. parntanum is now the official name, usitanum only a synonym.
The majority of taxonomists don't accept P. cerveranum as good species and therefore the name P. cerveranum is synonym to P. appletonianum.Jean it may turnout to be cervenianum(sp?) and a good one if so. Lets see when the flower matures.
Unfortunately, it looks as if the flower matured much too fast, the petals totally recurved. I think to cut off the spike and give the plant another chance!?Jean it may turnout to be cervenianum(sp?) and a good one if so. Lets see when the flower matures.
Thanks a lot for that pict.!! this flower is nearer to mine than to the real parnatanum that olaf and rudolf showed us!! Maybe I should contact lutz roellke about possible origin! JeanI like this one whatever it is. I did take a photo of a plant at the London Orchid Show in March this year that is similar to yours and was also labelled P. usitanum ... can't remember who's display it was though.
