I hope Paphiopedilum hirsutissimum is correct id..
Very beautiful. Yes this is Paphiopedilum hirsutissimum.
Thanks for sharing these beautiful pics.
Sorry I am a bit skeptic. This could be an hybrid of hirsutissimum and not the pure form.

Paphiopedilum hybrid ??

Paphiopedilum hirsutissimum.
Thanks a lot for sharing.
Not sure if it was collected from wild or purchased from market.  

Thank you for the ID. I brought this plant from Kalingpong, India.
I guess this was collected from wild.
