Freak Orchid Flower:
While on the subject of Oroxylum flower with 8 stamens (…. post) I wanted to attach this picture of fused corolla which I could not find, hence posting now. Do we say that this Eulophia nuda orchid has 5 petals, 5 sepals, 2 columns and 2 lips? The usual purple colour is also changed to rosy white.


This is for sure Eulophia spectabilis earlier known as Eulophia nuda.
Can you please share larger image, and please also allow me to share this with some of the orchid experts!!
Deformed flower in orchids is not a big deal. I have a Dendrobium moschatum which never has a labellum but column is present.
Color deformities in Dendrobium amoenum is also well known.


.


Eulophia confusion: With reference to the August posts of … and …,
there still seems to be some doubt over the simple herb Eulophia nuda.
It is called amarkand or goruma in hindi, mankand in marathi, budhuvar in bengali.
The root grows in the konkan area and himalaya valley.
I would appreciate any knowledge of its availability.

Eulophia nuda is now called Eulophia spectabilis and it is widespread in India, especially downwards from Jharkhand, Central India…. It is also reported from western Himalaya.


My post was about ‘fused’ (not confused) corolla, ie of a freak flower of E. spectabilis syn E. nuda.

Yes Eulophia spectabilis. Beautiful pictures. More colours have been reported in this species from wild.


Very good shots.
All sp. names of Eulophia seem to be of the description about the flowers and not places or scientists.
Again I couldn’t find this in BSI Flora

Eulophia andamanensis
Eulophia petersii 🙂


I take my words back. My observation was based on the list of sp. mentioned in BSI Flora mah.


Thank you very much … for the appreciation.
Eulophia nuda treated as synonym of E. spectabilis could be covered in flora, please check.

Oh yes Eulophia nuda is there. Didn’t know the synonymy.

Again not easy to confirm without flowers.



Revisited the plant, Eulophia spectabilis (Orchidaceae) that I had uploaded earlier, and was amazed to find it in fruiting stage…!

Cant confirm with this pic. But nice to see an orchid fruiting.


I followed this particular E.spectabilis plant through its different stages of flowering, emergence of foliage and now this one, fruiting.


If you have seen the flower then its perfect. Thanks for letting me know.

Affirmative. My photographs for comparison. Attachments (3)


You know sir, there are so many Eulophias in India, most of the fruits of this genus look same except for a very few like zollingeri and flava.
I have seen E. spectabilis, E. herbacea and E. explanata growing together with Geodorum. Ofcourse Geodorum you can make out from the curved stalk, but rest cant be differentiated so easily unless you have already seen the flower.
But its all about opinion. Some say its half glass empty, others say its half glass full.

Unid Ginger family plant from Manipur: 4 images.

A plant found growing on a hill side in Manipur, at altitudes of 800-1000 m.
Found flowering in early May. It reminds me of some Curcuma species.
Any help in identification will be welcome.


Forgot to add that the flowering stem seems to be arising out of the ground.


It appears to be one type of Ground Orchid popularly called Pine pink


Pankaj Kumar says that it is a Eulophia orchid species, probably Eulophia nuda.
