Paph delenatii, a native of Vietnam. First identified and brought to Europe (France) back in the 1920's. Few plants were brought into cultivation, was thought very rare, (and was in cultivation until it was "selfed" then relatively common). In the 1980's it was rediscovered in the wilds of Vietnam and more colorful clones where brought into cultivation...

Lots of colorful clones became cultivated in the 80s, Rob....

I'm sure it does... unfortunately they can become rather tall plants, (similar in size to the "standard" cymbidiums), so are difficult to cultivate in the house, under lights. Otherwise, aside from occasional bacterial rot issues, especially in the newly unfurling growth, they are relatively easy to grow.
