Manipur identifications 4: Here’s a ground orchid from Khayangphung mountain, on the border with Burma. Probably 2200m+ asl.
It looks like Eulophia graminea to me.
My dear friends, to me this looks like a Cymbidium cyperifolium 🙂
I would agree. Here is a close up of the same plant from the same spot on Khiayang Phung, Manipur
Thanks dear … I stand corrected!
It’s somewhat differ from Cymbidium cyperifolium; it’s may be Cymbidium ensifolium…. please inform the altitude and how many flowers in the inflorescence…..
Petals and sepals are more roundish in Cymbidium ensifolium as far as I remember and it is narrower in Cymbidium cyperifolium. Leaves are slightly broader in ensifolium too.
