Kas Week :AVD: Peristylus densus:01 October 2012: Peristylus densus, family: Orchidaceae



 

Kaas week : Peristylus densus: Common orchid of grasslands and co-habitated with Hitchania, Vigna,
Cynotis
and Impatiens.


Its look like Habenaria ovalifolia


Same as … to me too, looks like Habenaria ovalifolia


I disagree with the suggestions with valid reason stated here below-
Habenaria ovalifolia would always have the lower lib turned upward which is not in the pic that I posted earlier. For the ease of viwing I am posting a close-up of the flower, which you may please also observe and comment on my justification.


I think you are right
This is Peristylus densus.


Yes this is Peristylus densus. Please look at the spur. Habenaria ovalifolia apart from a different lip structure, will also have a very much longer spur.

H. ovalifolia is a much taller plant and it does not occur at Kas. Good, a doubt digs out details at least (last).

KAS Week:: (Peristylus densus ??? 11/10/2012 – NJ): Peristylus densus ?? Pl. Validate


Yes its Peristylus densus


While taking orchid pics please dont forget to take a pic in a way that it shows the front of flower, spur, whole plant, orientation of leaves and size of plant along with a good closeup from front and side of flower.

This really helps in proper identification.
Just a friendly question?
Now some one tell me why this plant is not Peristylus richardianus?


Browsing the net images I  feel it looks like Peristylus densus.
However, image quality of this post is not to the level to decide!


Yes this should be Peristylus densus.
