Please help in ID of this orchid photographed from Chakrata in September.

Seems leaf is variegated, is it? If yes then this could be Habenaria aitchisonii. But cant confirm species from this pic.

I dont know how and when it is identified but I have its name as Goodyera repens in my folder of Chakrata. … please solve the puzzle.

Thanks. Attaching one picture also

No sir this is Habenaria aitchisonii not Goodyera and I can see flower in … pic too. That’s a typical Habenaria with long spur and three lobed labellum.
