Awarded As: Paphiopedilum villosum var. laichaunum
I got a Paphiopedilum villosum awarded last year. The judges awarded it as var anamense but it was not an anamense. I believed it was the newly described variety laichaunum but this new variety had not yet been accepted as a legitimate variety. I provided the documentation information for this new variety. I was told the AOS would change my award to the right varietal name... from anamense to laichaunum. The awarded name of my plant is Paphiopedilum villosum var anamense ‘Lily’ HCC/AOS but should be Paphiopedilum villosum var laichaunum ‘Lily’ HCC/AOS.
