Nice pics sir, thanks for sharing……
I can see this species in NRCO, Kalimpong and also reported from Assam but I cannot found in wild.

I found triste in Western Himalaya. It has been very often reported from NE Himalaya too. Its a unique Bulbophyllum with two leaves.

I wish i will be able to see all these orchids some day. Fantastic set of photographs.

This is actually found in India in the Himalayas, so if you travel that side, then yes you can see them in the wild.
