Oberonia pachyrachis from Uttarakhand: May 2014 DSR_6 : 4 posts by 3 authors. Attachments (2). 
This epiphytic orchid was shot near Jeolikot, Nainital area (Uttarakhand).

Only a closer view indicated that it also contains minute flowers in addition to capsules on fleshy inflorescence axis. Flowers are born in small grooves on fleshy axis.
I hope the ID is correct.


Yes this is Oberonia pachyrachis. Infact Dehradun is the type locality for this species.

Flowers are dry, when fresh they are bigger and golden yellow to orange in colour.
