For ID 040508SB2 : 1 image.
Greetings to you all after a long time. I was in Jaldapara last month (3.10.09) and unable to identify some plants whose pictures I am attaching. For members residing outside W.Bengal, Jaldapara Reserve is situated at an avg height of  36 m above sea-level at the foothills of the Himalayas.
This one is probably the picture of a ground orchid in grassland. The flowers are less than a cm and the flowering scape is about 45 cmin height. Please help.

Identified by … as Calanthe triplicata.
