Doesn't look like Paph amabile to me; at least, not like the ones that I grow. The texture of the leaves looks a little bit cloth-like, though it's hard to tell while it's wet.... that would lead me to believe Paph. lawrenceanum, and the color is about right. Also looks like some Paph dayanums that I've seen.

It's always a bit hard to tell with that section, though... from the leaves alone.

I have a P. amabile that looks not too dissimilar, Ill try to post a pic later. However, I've also seen amabile with leaves that are very different almost white and green mottling.
This section of paphs is a nightmare ... and at least in some of these species the leaves do vary a lot ... i think you're going to have to be patient and wait for flowers.
Cheers,
Tim
