Does it say Moustache on the label and you are questioning if that's right, or is there no tag and that's your best guess for the hybrid and you wonder what others think? I don't know these hybrids well enough to guess - but it's lovely and has a great flower count whatever it is! :)

Please excuse my bad English.
I want to know if this really a Moustache.
A friend of mine is of the opinion that this could also be a praestans.

Definitely not a praestans, although you'll have to wait for someone more expert to answer if there could possibly be any praestans in the background of the cross...praestans wouldn't have nearly that many flowers I don't think!

Very nice.

Definately not a praestans. If it says Moustache on the label than I am happy to go with that. I see no reason to doubt it.

Your flower agrees well with Paph Moustache, and a rather nice one at that. I see no reason to doubt the label. Your flower does not show any Paph praestans that I can see. The deep bold stripes are typical of the better Moustache clones I have seen.
