    I sent an email and the photos for identification to William Cavestro.
    Here is the answer:
    "It's a very beautiful Paphio. That I don't have. Congratulations for the flowering and the photos.
    At the taxonomic level, this Paphio poses many problems. Some taxonomists recognize it as a species. Others like Koopowitz as a hybrid between P. stonei and P. kolopakingii.
    It was found in Sarawak but only one population is known. According to Koopowitz, it may be easier to recognize it as a variety of P. kolopakingii. Cribb believes that P. platyphyllum would not be a hybrid between P. stonei and P. kolopakingii because it does not grow in the same area as these 2 species.

    Conclusion: this Paphio is still an enigma! Yours is probably a P. platyphyllum or a variety of P. kolopakingii... In any case, it is very beautiful and that is probably the main thing.
