Default Paphiopedilum insigne cultivars

Is there a list of Paph. insigne cultivars commonly grown. I have one, generically. Though I would like to know what is out there!

The only ones I have heard of are the standard and sanderae, but there is a sanderianum also awarded.

I have no idea how the the two"sandies" differ, if at all.

There are close to 100 recognized varieties of Paph insigne. Of the ones mentioned:

Var sanderae is a semi-alba. Yellow flower with a some white on the dorsal and a few faint spots near the base on the dorsal.

Var sanderiana is a true alba (= no spots).
