Malaxis purpurea
(Crepidium purpureum)
Malaxis resupinata (Crepidium resupinatum)

This could be anything. Cant even think of making a guess!!!

This is so much like Liparis nervosa which is known from Orissa, but cant be confirmed from this pic.

Inflorescence and stem is short and small. Could it be Liparis nervosa (Thunb.) Lindl. ??

Cant make this out, but surely a Liparis and deformed. Cant remember of such big plant with such short inflorescence but as I said, it looks deformed.

Ok … It was on very shady location. May be deformed as you have indicated.

It is possible that this is Liparis nervosa, a deformed version. I need to see the flower from front.
