Let me throw Paph wardii into the mix, too :)

I think its got a big dose of wardii in it. Is that a second bud below the open flower? The foliage is also very barbata like too.

What are the parents of Recovery?

looking back at the flower, I agree that wardii is a very good possibility as one of the parents. the petal pattern isn't consistent with that of sukhakulii. would be interesting to compare to photos of garnet crown (wardii x roths) or wardii x phil if anyone has any.
