    i was looking at Tom Hillson's website and saw this picture. one comment suggests it's not stonei. the other one says it is. i'm not sure. i think it's Lady Isabel, though... maybe a different photo would have a different result, but...

    Not sure....the person who said stonei x Lady Isabel has a point. It's definitely stonei dominant.

    I would say that it's not a stonei. The petals has to much markings and the staminode is brown with a much more distinct knee witch stonei doesn't have. To me that is clearly a beautiful Lady Isabel!

    Looks more like Lady Isabel. I could see it also being Lady Isabel crossed back onto stonei.

    I certainly see roths influence in the staminode too.

    Doesn't look like a straight stonei to me... looks like roth in there, but I'm no good at guessing hybrids :)

    staminode definitely throws some roth in the mix if you ask me.

    Nope - I have a hybrid that this photo is a dead ringer for:
    I'Ansonii = (Morganiae x rothschildianum) registered in 1898
    Morganiae = (stonei x superbiens)

    The flowers do look like a Lady Isabel on steroids. Orchids by Hausermann was selling seedlings of a remake of this cross way back in the 1980's. So good to know there are still a few around.

    Definitely not Paph stonei......You can see the influence of Paph rothschildianum with the coloration and the "bent-knee" staminode which is very distinctive. Has to be Paph Lady Isabel
