This was seen in the forest near a waterfall in Tamhini ghat near Pune, MH in Aug 2019.
Surprisingly, this was the sole individual around.
Hopefully this is Iphigenia magnifica (based on efi pics).
Flower looks almost similar to I. indica !
Yes …, but going by the distinguishing factor mentioned in FoI (stamen filaments are hairless), this is I. magnifica.
However, would like to expert opinion.
… is correct. key on this page
