Goodyera repens from Shimla.

Nice to now that you have found them in Shimla..

Very non typical habitat for Goodyera repens.
They usually grow on road sides usually vertically, but this seems to like Pine forests.

On my walk last Sunday I photographed this orchid too. The flowers were not yet fully open. The leaves told me that the plant was Goodyera repens. Please advise.

I have been meaning to post these photos for a while but did not get the time earlier. i found this above Triund on my way down from Ilaqa earlier this month. The flowers look a lot like those of the Goodyera repens but the leaves appear different. Please advise.

Goodyera repens.

Very beautiful pics, you got the open flowers….!!

Saw this small orchid en route VOF from Ghangaria, Uttarakhand in Aug 2018.
This was growing very close to Androcorys josephii posted by me here.
Requested to kindly provide ID.

Goodyera repens (l.) R. Br. ?? 3000-3500 m??

Goodyera repens.
The point where you saw this you could have also seen, Calanthe triplicata, Listera teunis, Cephalanthera longifolia etc.

Thanks … for validating.. This particular area was very rich w.r.t. diversity. I tried hard to find any more orchids but 🙁
I think we went too late in the season – last week of August, hence could not find any more specimens.

small bell shaped drooping flowers of this orchid are reminiscent of the drooping bells of lily of the valley. but this is an orchid.
