Has anyone heard about this?
I'm kind of busy with my roth alba, no time for a jokowii
A few Indonesian orchid hunters have shared pics on Facebook recently. To me, it looks intermediate between tonsum and javanicum. Thought it might be a natural hybrid but they say that the population is pretty large (hundreds of plants at least).
soon to be extinct in the wild.................
Unfortunately too true!
You sure it's not Paph. aprilfoolsium?
Yes Tim that is it. It is new. I would suggest hybrid although the reports do say it is a large group of plants that are isolated from the potential species that would form it. Some have already been in trade and I believe there is more than one in that area that has been shown on FB.
Looks like exul shape. I wish there was a better photo.
I have a few Eric. I can email them to you.
I'd love some better photos if you have a link or something
It's rather nice whatever it is
If that is typical, the proportions of that flower don't suggest a hybrid unless one parent has proportionally even longer narrower nearly horizontal petals... rothschildianum? I don't think so. If it is a large disjunct population it appears to be something new.
Just looks like javanicum to me!
Wouldn't mind seeing those myself
