An Orchid from Choukori, Uttarakhand
14/10/2012


Very unusual… superb looks new to me…
no wonder plant stealers come to India for stealing orchids and then go back home and brag about them…
this land is treasure trove


Lovely pictures … I am also waiting for its id.. got this near Chaukori…


Dendrobium peguanum, I suppose.


I imagine if this plant is flowering now and the flowers are so big. Dendrobium peguanum but it is supposed to flower at the end of winter I assume. Feb in Chhotanagpur. Even flowers are very dense in peguanum, this is so lax flowered.
This should be Dendrobium monticola.


The shape of the perianth members of Dendrobium sp. in discussion is different from Dendrobium peguanum. I am very sure that this isn’t D. peguanum….

Attaching photo of Dendrobium peguanum…. Please comment….


This group of small Dendrobiums including monticoladenudansgreguluspeguanum etc are very tricky. The key is based on the presence of callus on the labellum. But with the help of proper leaves also you may get some help. Peguanum has thicker leaves with leathery texture. Monticola has thinner, narrower leaves wth papery texture.
The image shared before looks like monticola to me. But your picture looks like peguanum to me. Thicker leaves are evident. Its always good to have complete picture of the plant. Peguanum has broader and
conical pseudostems,
 where as most of the rest have elongated and narrower pseudostems.

This thread above by … has true Dendrobium peguanum.


Here is my Dendrobium peguanum from wild in Jharkhand.


Here is the whole plant….. I wanted to show the difference in shape of petals, sepals and labellum that’s why I sent the earlier image…..


Sending a few of my more recent photographs. Some of my previous photographs are also available at this link :

I did not know D. monticola existed in place of D. peguanum in UK. D. peguanum was the nearest so I wildly hinted at it. The orchid posted by … IS D. monticola from pseudobulb shape and from leaves. Let me drift back the discussion to D. monticola with my picture taken in our last trip to Gori Valley.


Sending one more photographs showing pseudobulb and leaf

Dendrobium monticola (Orchidaceae) from Uttarakhand : Attachments (4). 3 posts by 3 authors.
Dendrobium monticola Hunt. & Summerh. (Orchidaceae) is a tiny but beautiful subtropical to temperate orchid found mainly in the Himalaya.
It is epiphytic found on tree trunks or moist rocks. The plant hardly reaches to 10 cm height  but its clumps are as large as one foot over rocks.
Photographed at 2000m altitude in Kali valley of Pithoragarh District Uttarakhand in July 2013.

Amazingly good, though we are (…and me) are visiting Uttarakhand next week and hoping to see such beauties.


Thanks …for nice upload, we were also lucky to find this last year when we visited Gori valley area, me … and … though this was away from our general range of sight.. yet could not escape keen eye of … thanks for lovely pics..

This epiphytic orchid was shot during Gori valley tour…
I am hopeful this was rightly identified as.. Dendrobium monticola
If otherwise, please suggest..


Yes this should be dendrobium monticola.

Dendrobium monticola Hunt & Summerh is a common epithytic or lithophytic tiny orchid in UttarakhandIt grows in Temperate areasShot in Kali valley at an altitude of about 1800m.

Yes this should be Dendrobium monticola, very often misidentified as Dendrobium denudans.

Dendrobium monticola P.F.Hunt & Summerh.  ??

Very nice but without flower there are many species to get confused with. But looks close to D. monticola and of course there are some Oberonia too among the pics.
