First flowering of this Phrag but should a longifolium have such a huge petal behind the pouch?-- or is this not longifolium?

The "petal" is actually the ventral sepal, and this isn't unusual particularly if the pouch doesn't bloom very large which seems the case with this one.

It looks to be longifoliun. If you look at the pouch from the side, you should see a square ear like structure. That is a marker for longifolium. The synsepal is a bit large, but is the luck of the draw from the gene pool.
