An Orchid from Choukori, Uttarakhand
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.
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….
This group of small Dendrobiums including monticola, denudans, gregulus, peguanum 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

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.
