I bought this mini one without knowing what the flowers looked like. Now after a year's wait it has flowered.

Yeah ... I can only guess ... tranlieanum x spicerianum ... the vendor was a little vague. However, it might not have any spicerianum at all and just be code for tranlieanum x barbigerum. Although some vendors here in Europe openly sell tranlieanum, coccineum, helenae and their hybrids some in the UK are still nervous about this.
Cheers,

You can definitely see some spicerianum in the dorsal...it looks like a perfect blend of all three species...Nice! Eric

I can agree with Eric.
In Europe only one hybrid with tranlienianum was known:
Paph. Vinci the cross between Paph. helenae and Paph. tranlienianum



For most of the hybridizer Paph. tranlienianum looks not attractive enough. I think there would be a potential especially for compact growing slipperhybrids for the windowsill.

Best greetings

Olaf
