Thanks, …, for id as Eulophia explanata
Very nice to see this plant after so long. This is Eulophia explanata.
Thanks everyone! I was reading about it and it says it is usually found further north. Surprised to find it in MP at about 350m elevation.
It is known in Central India and I have also seen it in Bihar, Jharkhand, Chattishgarh and Orissa. Further south I haven’t heard of it.
