Kindly examine and identify this Conchidium sp (Orchidaceae)…… Could this be Conchidium filiforme or Conchidium microchilos….??? 

Habit: Herb 

Habitat: Wild, Evergreen forest 

Sighting: Kottigehara, Chikmagalur, Karnataka, about 1200 msl 

Date: 13-08-2016

Of course Conchidium but which one?
I think microchilos has reticulated silver linings on the bulb where as filiforme has not such reticulations. I always get confused.
Please show a good image of the bulb.
That ways this could be 

Sorry, pressed wrong button. My poor English.
I meant I always get confused with which one has silver reticulations and which one doesn’t have.
Please share some closeups of healthy bulbs if possible.

Please look into this image showing the bulbs….. I think the reticulate silver linings are conspicuous. You are the better judge. Attachments (1)

This is Conchidium filiformis

I would say this is Conchidium filiforme. Thanks a lot for sharing.
