    You know, I saw that auction on eBay and was thinking the same exact thing. What is this orchid? Is this a described variety or simply someone's idea so that they can ask a higher price? the leaves look rather narrow for a primulinum. Maybe it's a hybrid?

    It is not a valid published variety of Paph primulinum. The only variety of primulinum is var. purpurascens as well as the base species primulinum.

    Well, this is one of the things there is disagreement on. Some say that liltii is a variety, separated by the pouch color and small size of the flower in comparison with purpurascens.

    Doesn't look like liltii to me....the leaves are way too long and floppy...however, he is generally a very reliable seller with good plants. Take care, Eric
