Flora Picture of the Year 2011 – Satish Phadke: Flower hunting with … is always memorable.
You know …, climbing on high trees is the fun of flora photographing and if fallen down that is additional bonus. I was awarded this bonus once at Matheran for photographing Anjani flower.

Wonderful Dendrobium mabelae. Thanks so much for sharing.
Sorry for the wrong spelling. It should be according to a sentence from The Plant List which says but I am not sure about it Dendrobium mabelae Gammie is a synonym of Dendrobium nanum Hook.f.

Does look like Dendrobium nanum. For small Dendrobiums, its good to take a pic of spread up labellum.

Yes this also looks like Dendrobium nanum. Better to show a good pic of spread up lip. Thanks a lot for sharing.
Thanks … This one is another image of D.nanum that I missed uploading in the first batch. Attachments (1)
Very beautiful…fourth one most beautiful of all !!
Wild Orchid From Hulikal: I came across this orchid growing on a mossy Croton bush in Hulikal.. the flowers were very small, about the size of a fingernail. there were pseudobulbs too. id please?
Dendrobium nanum?? i guess
I am actually confused about Dendrobium microbulbon and Dendrobium nanum.
Dont know how to differentiate
This is what I found out from Orchids of Nilgiris by J. Joseph, p 133, t. 69
Rhizomes zigzag; bracts much smaller than pedicel; mentum long (up to 9mm), subcylindric, projecting forward; lip attached to the foot of the column up to a short distance from the tip: DENDROBIUM NANUM
Rhizomes straight; bracts subequal with the pedicel and ovary; mentums hort (ca 5mm), saccate; lip attached to the tip of the foot of the column; midlobe of the lip obscurely crenulate: DENDROBUM MICROBULBON.
Could be Dendrobium microbulbon than D. nanum.
Pictures provided are not conclusive. Need more flower close up pictures to confirm the id, I think.
Ok Karnataka. I think this is Dendrobium nanum. Not easy to confirm from these pics, but not microbulbon.
