Great flowers both of them!

The hooded stance of the one on the right, might not adhere to the current fads in judging and line breeding - it's never the less a gorgeous flower!

Both are lovely flowers no doubt but sorry to say this again....at least the left one is no leucochilum just P. godefroyae and by the right one it depends of it whether someone bends the rule or not. If you accept P. godefroyae f. leucochilum (KEW doesn't accept it) than it distinguishes by P. godefroyae only by its PURE white pouch.

Rudolf, you are so right! As there is no such a thing as leuco-almost-chilum (it's like pregnancy: either that pouch is all white on the outside or it isn't), both better be considered godefroyae - which, albeit, doesn't subtract a iota from their beauty! :p

PS. You are in good company, though, Djthomp - even as distinguished a Paph-connaiseur as mr. Popow, sr. doesn't get it right every time! ;)

The one in the square pot seems to be better

I like the dark markings.
I suspect all the in and out breeding blurs the leuco vs godefroyae distinction

These are from Odom's Orchids. These clones have different parents. Both are first time bloomers. I am hoping the shape improves as they mature especially with the one on the right. It looks like it is wearing a hood.

Very nice flowers, but both of them are godefroyae, not leucochilum! I have a leucochilum in bloom right now and there is no outside spotting to the pouch at all.
