I currently reside in New York City, but a friend of mine from Japan sent me this picture of this mystery plant. Can anyone help identify the name of this? We're both clueless. Thank you for any help or leads!

Cyripedium japonicum?



I did earlier put in a request for this thread to be moved to Plant ID, so that may still happen even if we think that's it.

Cypripedium sp.
But there are several it might be...not necessarily C.japonicum.

58 sp and many hybrids.
They are now micro propagating them here and are much cheaper and available in garden centres...previously just small select nurseries grew them at huge expense.

I think C. japonicum would be a reasonable assumption since the picture is from Japan but of course you're right, we don't know if it is taken in the wild or not.
