I just bloomed what was suppose to be a Norito Hasegawa but it has hairs on the petals. Doesn't that mean it is a Shun Fa Golden? Also the color is not as bright as other norito that I have seen. I do however realize that all norito's are not a bright yellow and some may be greenish from the malipoense. Thoughts?

Here is a Norito Hasegawa of mine that is blooming right now.

Not only is it not yellow, or really green even (!) it is somewhat fuzzy.
I do no believe it has any hangianum in it because the inflorescence is very tall, and the leaves are what you would expect from malipoense x armeniacum in shape and color, not what you'd expect from a hangianum cross.

by the way, I would expect the leaves to be different too.
Shunfa Golden will have a smoother upper surface , wavy leaf (from partly hangianum) and vein patterns should be less prominent
Norito Hasegawa will have prominents pattern from malipoense & armeniacum, and the surface should be rougher.
Here are the 2 plants with leaves photos on ebay from springwater & Laorchidjohn for comparison
