We can certainly agree on the fact, that it is a sub-variety of something, Leslie! 😁

If we should agree on barbatum, though, in my book the colouring of your flower doesn't adhere to the description of nigritum (seems IM-not so-HO more like something then in barbatum equaling var. sublaeve within callosum).
This kind of colouring is more what I would expect to find in nigritum, keeping in mind that 'niger' means 'black' (yet another plant of mine resting peacefully in Orchid Heaven):
