Hi Diana,
               I have photos of many species Hipp flowers that Len Doran 
took of his collection. I'm fairly certain your plant is a hybrid.
               It has the appearance of a combination of H.aulicum [the 
green stripe on the segments and the intense red but not strictly aulicum 
shape] and H.papilio [papilio shape and the intensification of the red 
colouration with papilio purple/brown]. Your mentioning that the segments 
tend to close over is a papilio feature that is reminiscent of the butterfly 
after which papilio is named.
                Anyone else agree or disagree?
