I'm not sure as the picture is quite small but the narrow petals on this and the flower shape make it look more like H. cybister 'Lima' than H. papilio. Perhaps if a larger photo were available it would be easier to be certain.

Nice, but don't be a H. papilio, I think a hybrid of cybister

I'll see if I can find a larger photo. I agree that the petals look more narrow.

Definitely not a H. papilio but can't say for sure what variety it is. Could be a papilio X cybister cross.

Thanks for your input. I can't change the name since I don't own the photo but I will move it to the parent plant entry and hopefully these comments will follow it.
