I bought these from Orchid Inn as seedlings of P. superbiens. Could you please direct me to the most recent literature that recognizes curtisii as a valid species. Kew lists curtisii as a synonym and elsewhere I have seen it listed as a variety of superbiens.All are very nice, album form is very rare.I think both are not superbiens, but curtisii, as I know, two taxons are different species today.
There isn't! And I'm not the one to open the whole can of worms, that Eric is hinting at!If there is settled nomenclature for these plants could someone please direct me to the publication?
I almost forgot to praise the gorgeousnes of your albinistic form, fma. sanderae!Your plant is really a true Paphiopedilum curtisii. Some years ago the true Paph. superbiens was found again and this Shows the clear differences to curtisii. Her eat first two different clones of curtisii
