please identify the orchid from Bhim Tal, Uttarakhanda.


There are two orchids.

1641 – Rhynchostylis retusa
1643 – Pholidota articulata


First one seems to be some Aerides sp. & second one is Pholidota sp. the sp. may be articulata as stem looks jointed in pics. So you have to check flowers for confirmation of id.


I am sorry but I was pretty sure about my id for these two species.

Its a Rhynchostylis retusa and you can see the retuse leaf apex. Aerides will have bilobed apex and usually its well folded.
Second pic is Pholidota articulata
