Paphiopedilum parishii (Rchb.f.) Stein in natural habitat of Thailand always was called upon their habitat such as Kanchanaburi or ChiangDao. Especially, P. parishii (Rchb.f.) Stein from ChiangDao district always was named to P. dianthum Tang & Wang. Then, Amplified Fragment Length Polymorphism (AFLP) technique was used to study genetic relationship of lady slippers (P. parishii (Rchb.f.) Stein) in Thailand. The results revealed that genetic differentiation among population in this orchid species relatively low.  Percentage of polymorphic loci is 66.11%. Principal component analysis (PCA) for clustering could classify into distinct groups differentiate from P. dianthum Tang & Wang. We can conclude that lady slipper P. parishii (Rchb.f.) Stein from different population in Thailand are the same species.
