I have seen very much the same looking one at a nursery years ago. The petals are unusually smooth and the dark spots are merged together to form lines almost like yours.
I do prefer wild appearance of unruly petals though on this species, though! but with flat white dorsal with just a little bit of black markings.
So hard to find that one you like.
Thanks for sharing your photo!
