Dang!

That is one cool picture of a beautiful flower even though I can't help you identify it. I tip my hat to you.

David, I bought it over at EFG Orchids on Power Plant Road. They have some beautiful phaius, too, along with some other real cool plants.

Gorgeous Jean! It looks a lot like one I have, or had (I'm not sure if it's still out there in the menagerie). This isn't the greatest photo; I don't think in person it's this dark in color.

Check out some of these for comparison ... I'm so not good at trying to go back and forth comparing photo's: http://www.firstrays.com/photos_Paphs.htm

Thanks for the pics. I got it over at EFG and I suppose I could go over and ask George what it was, however, if I did that, one thing would lead to another (purchase).
