I'm absoluttely with Leslie & Brucher in designating this plant as var. annamense!
It was Olaf, wasn’t it, who pointed this distinction out the other day? I wouldn’t have known otherwise. Now I’m correcting people!

Thanks for all the ID help with my little plant! I have learned so much from this wonderful thread. Now to wait for my other villosum to bloom to see what variety surprise it might be :)

Based on what I have been reading here, this is definitely not annamense which has white dorsal with dark purple center.
It does look like what I had and what others are showing here, which is laichaunum.

Updated pic a week after it opened. Size is more open and the colour of DS intensified to a yellow background with deep chestnut overlay. I read that villosums can last 60 days. Is this true? My aureum villosum lasted only 30ish days.

The one I had, laichaunum, lasted about two months. I also had a very large villosum, which I have no idea what variety, but very large plant with large flower, a typical color pattern (sorry to be so vague, but it just looks like any common villosum haha). It was already in bloom at the time of purchase but lasted a good one month before starting to look tired. I think it is pretty much like complex hybrid which stays in bloom for a very long. I had insigne lasting over two months in bloom. Spicerianum only lasts barely one months for me, although one odd blooming did last for longer than a month. Mine blooms every year and it is always barely 30 days in bloom.

Complex hybrids typically lasted 2-3months for me. There were two exceptions to this and they lasted for 6-7months! That was shocking!

Howard, is this from 'Chuck's Warrior' x self?
This is definitely the laichaunum form.

Happy, 6-7 months??? Wow... longest for me was the green complexes that lasted about 3 months.

This recently described variety laichaunum of P. villosum is a real stunner and perhaps the pretties of all P. villosum types, at least for me. All photos here in this thread show really lovely flowers. Some of them deserve to be awarded in the future.

I have several of these. I had one improperly awarded as var. annamense before I got AOS to agree that var. laichaunum was a legitimate variety. Now I’m working on getting the award changed from annamense to laichaunum. #2-5 are first time blooms Once they bloom again I’ll see if I can get any awarded correctly.

Don’t suppose you’d care to part with villosum number 4

The flower on my little annamense finally fell off today - that was a nice long run of 2 months, as it started blooming around November 20.

Hi,
(My first post . . ., not sure about how to upload images, sorry). Based on this thread, it appears that my Paph. villosum is not fma. amnamense, notwithstanding the tag. On a positive note, it has a spread of 10.8 cm and this plant gave me two flowers on its second bloom.

Hi KateL
You are correct... your plant is not var anamense. Paph villosum var. anamense has a white background color on the dorsal not yellow. Yours appears to be var. laichaunum.

Thanks, Phred! I am glad I finally joined the talk.
