There is a lovely photo of a translieneanum alba on one of the paph forums on Facebook.
It too has a lovely green bos.
I wonder what the cross between these two would look like?

Could you send me link here to see this tranlieanum album?

I suspect the result of the crossing will be yellow flowers of similar shapes with a big yellow round staminode with green eye, and deeper pouch.

If I had the know how I would!
It’s in the Facebook group of slipper orchid Australia, it might also be in the British paphiopedilum society. It’s posted by a guy with a polish surname. He has some serious paphs.

Love your description M85!

Today the petals have extended slightly.

Finally fully matured flower. Taken in the bright early morning sun diffusing through window. Seems like the green bos or umbo gradually dissappear. Wonder if it is related to increased fertility in the first few weeks when the flower was fresher. It does serve a role to attract the pollinator. Unless a different pollinator is activated in a later phase? Hmmm
