This cross is P. wolterianum x venustum. Hausermann’s had an amazing specimen in their collection 25+ years ago. I put my name on the list for a division, but I had no luck. Later, I was told that one of their two plants had been stolen! Then last year, I was going through their Paphs and I found a tray of seedlings labeled Shanti Gardens x self. I bought the 3 largest seedlings and a handful of smaller ones. This is the first to bloom. It has great color and the very thin wiry stem of wolterianum. I hope that is as vigorous a plant as the original. I have another in bud, but the bud/stem look more like venustum.
