Thank You … for appreciation and many thanks
Beautiful post but it would have been much better to view if images were rotated before posting
I am unable to upload with correct orientation, am not sure why
You have to rotate image at source, i.e., laptop.
I have done that already, but it is not reflecting here.
Thank you … for uploading pics in the right orientation! 🙂
To me, Zingiber diwakarianum.

Are you sure about the id Z. neesanum?
… my belief same as … … me too have spotted this plant at various places around Pune and Satara at high altitudes.
Here is another view captured by me, of the same particular plant of ….
Am not much sure about the identity of the plant in the picture.
But am sure its not Zingiber neesanum…!!!
Usually Z. neesanum has slender spikes with brown, reddish- green bracts.
Also the flowers are white in colour with purple or pink spotted or striped labellum. I have some images with me, but misplaced some where. I shall upload the pictures later.
So I had to refer the book “Zingiberaceae & Costaceae of South India” authored by Dr. Sabu ( University of Calicut) to confirm my observations….!!!
It is not Z. neesanum
It is a new species (Or new genus – i want confirmation from my friend).
Even i am a little confused over it…
I am sending the one i found at Kaas…
This is one of the most confusing gingers of India. I have been looking for the type and protologue but the type is missing and the protologue is insufficient for confirmation. But tentatively now placed in Z. neesanum
however further studies are essential. Recently this is published as Z. divakanii from Pune. I will sent a pdf version of the paper later.
“Plant Discoveries 2011 by BSI” has mentioned about Zingiber diwakarianum R Kr Singh.
… in his reply has mentioned that this is published as Z. diwakarnii from Pune. It will be really interesting to see this paper and see if the plant posted by me earlier from Kas and similar plants seen in Mahabaleshwar and other regions of Sahyadri are Z. diwakarianum.
According to the current circumscription of the names mentioned above, this plant represents Zingiber diwakarianum R Kr Singh.
I think this will be Zingiber diwakarianum as per images and details herein.
