The lady slipper, Paphiopedilum parishii (Rchb.f.) Stein (lady slipper), is named based on their habitat such as Kanchanaburi, and Chiang Dao. For P. parishii (Chiang Dao) district is also namely P. dianthum Tang & Wang. The authors aimed to investigate the genetic relationship of lady slippers among the samples from 2 sources, using amplified fragment length polymorphism (AFLP) technique. The results revealed relatively low genetic differentiation (66.11%).
