Habenaria ¿ species ?
Habit: herb, standing about 25 – 30 cm
Habitat: under cover of large trees, among ground cover of other grass and herbs
Altitude: about 1900ft (580m) asl
Most of its leaves grow close to ground (about 4 – 5), and appear spread on ground. About 1 or 2 smaller leaves are found above ground. The flower is about 15 mm across.

first two photos are cropped versions

This is Habenaria plantaginea.


I was strongly thinking so. I discouraged myself from guessing because the spur in this case were not as long as those I have at Kas sighting !! Thank you very much for the ID.


Dont worry, he must have washed his spur with bad detergent and hence it got shrunk :P…

It is still plantaginea !!


This plant takes a lot of time to flower as it flowers almost towards the end of peak rainy season. If it rains normally the plant grows normally and if suddenly there is no rain for lets say 1 week then temperature rises and hence flowers open before time.

In other instance, in many species, spur takes time to elongate even after flower opens up.

So to me its ok to say that this is Habenaria plantaginea only.

This herb was seen en-route Bhimashankar (Lonavala-Bhimashankar Trek route).
Could this be Plantaginorchis plantaginea?

Habenaria plantagenea


It is my pleasure to present few images of Habenaria plantaginea (Orchidaceae 

Habit: Herb 

Habitat: Wild, terrestrial, deciduous forest, amidst grass 

Sighting: Near Hassan, Karnataka, about 900 msl 

Date: 23-09-2016


Yes sir this is indeed Habenaria plantaginea but the habitat is so different and very late flowering too. I have always seen this plant inside Sal forests usually in shade and never close to grasses.

Thanks a lot for sharing.
