Default Paphiopedilum vietnamense or not?

Hi everyone

I bought this Paphiopedilum vietnamense on ebay but I find there is something different compare with the Paphiopedilum vietnamense pics on wensite.The leaves on website are glossy and more wider,mine is narrow and the leaves are matte.Anyone can help to find if this is Paphiopedilum vietnamense or not?Thank you.

Based solely on these photos, I would say this plant's ID is suspect and that you're right to question it. I would also expect glossy leaves and significantly more undulation of the leaf margins.

However, I also can't 100% confidently rule out that it's P. vietnamense, and I'd at least have to see flowers to be absolutely sure one way or the other.

So I guess I'm saying, I doubt it's P. vietnamense, but I can't completely rule it out. I do know that P. Ho Chi Minh is sometimes sold (accidentally or otherwise) as P. vietnamense and sometimes it's tough to tell them apart definitively until they bloom.
