I found this growing on ground under a bush, in a place called ‘Gabrukunda’ in Sep. 2007, in the very less frequented eastern most part of Manas National Park, adjoining Bhutan hills.
A very similar picture exists on the following link. Will appreciate confirmation of ID and would like to know, is it rare of common?

Both pictures look alike to a laymen like me.
