Came across this herb at Purandar fort. One single leaf was seen at the bottom almost adhering to the ground, reminding me of the leaf of Hebenaria grandifloriformis. Not sure as to what this could be. Kindly help me in identification.

Ophioglosum reticulasum

Yes this is Ophioglossum, ophio meaning snake and glossum meaning toungue. One the basis of snake toungue like structure of the sporophyte. But leaves are too small to be reticulatum I think.

Ophioglossum reticulasum is a great choice but not sure of the species but Ophioglossum for sure.

It remineded me that i too have pics of Ophioglossum sp. and i had taken these pics one year ago.
i have dug them out from my database and put up in a separate mail

Ophioglossum reticulatum to be precise.
