Could this be Calanthe tricarniata? The lip is not clear hence too difficult to confirm I guess. May be … can validate the same.
For me also closest match is C. tricarinata (I hope … does not read my comment—from a novice on orchids; My match is based on three species described in Flora simlensis)
If it is tricarinata then there should be three carinate lamellae on the labellum. Which I cant see properly. By the look of the colors of the petals and sepals, it does look like Calanthe tricarinata, but I have seen fainted Calanthe plantaginea, it looks the same too. I remember last time what he showed was very much plantaginea and HE claims its the same plant.
And yeah, I have no issues if … leads in answering :)). It makes me happy to know that group is not fully dependent on me. Thats the way it should be and for sure I make lot of mistakes. But I have one good habit of rechecking my own ids. Its because somehow, if I see any orchid live or pic, it always remains in my head. So whenever I come across any reference book with similar characters, I always recheck, though I may not comment on the thread until I find my own id wrong.
Any one can be wrong in id of plant on the basis of just picture of flower or leaves…thats not big issue
I am sorry if my language is not clear enough..
This is an example of mistake which can arise when you do not provide the date of taking pictures.

This ground orchid is shot in Sunderdhunga valley at an altitude of 2400m. Seems C.tricarinata, experts may have a better determination. Image-2 is a cropped up part of first image.
Yes sir this should be Calanthe tricarinata.
