Epiphytic orchid in Manipur:
Hello again. Can anyone identify for me this small flowered epiphytic orchid found on the mountain Khayangphung in E. Manipur. Flowering in late November at approx’ 1800m asl.
Apologies for the quality of the image.

This is Otochilus. Will need more details to confirm the species.

Looking at the leaves, this could be Otochilus albus.

Its looks like Otochilus albus…..

This is Otochilis, not easy to make out Otochilus albus or porrectus. I need a better pic of whole plant and closeup of flower.
