Golden Yellow Habenaria • Marathi: पिवली हबेआमरी Pivali habe amri;
Habenaria furcifera is a much taller plant, in vegetative condition, leaves are slightly scattered and you will not find a prominent margin on the leaf, whereas in Habenaria marginata, leaves are clustered on the ground with distinct white margin. In flowers, obviously furcifera is much taller with totally green flowers, labellum is three lobed with filiform lobes centre pointing forward and side lobes pointing backwards. In H. marginata the flower is perfect golden yellow much shorter than furcifera and bigger too. The labellum is three lobed which are not filiform, and the tip of side lobed curled inwards giving a spiral look or rounded

Beautiful pics and one of my favourites among Habenaria. Thanks so much for sharing.
I have observed this in many places around Pune. Somehow becoming less common due to large scale construction activity.
A large patch of Military area was covered with so many plants last year is now due for construction activity 🙁
Another observation is the exact season of flowering: first fortnight of Oct for last 4 years. I checked the dates of every years photographs.
