Paphiopedilum urbanianum f. alboviride Braem

Paphiopedilum urbanianum is a species of plant in the Orchidaceae family. It is endemic to Mindoro in the Philippines. Its natural habitat is subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests. It is almost extinct in the wild, partly due to habitat loss, but even more so because of unsustainable collecting for the horticultural trade.
