please find attached photos of a Habenaria. Could this be Habenaria foliosa?
This is a very very interesting find. I am on bed and checking your mail and pics. Will confirm tomorrow but this looks something close to Habenaria ramayana or Habenaria panigrahiana. I had long been thinking of merging both but never could see live plants of both!!!
You are great !!
Where did you find this intetresting orchid. I too am curious to here further from …
Will be great to hear anything on this 🙂 Thanks …
This was found in Coorg.. lower elevations. Could see Habenaria ovalifolia, Habenaria longicorniculata, Nervilia crociformis in the vicinity as well.
I am so sorry I was wrong as I had my first glance of these pics on my bed. This should be Habenaria elwesii. A very rare orchid from south India.
I got a dream last night that I made a mistake on this 🙂
Thanks so much for sharing.
No …, this is not H. elwisii. It is different. Let me see whether I have pictures.
The white beard are lost as they are deciduous. Flowers are not fresh.
I have your elwesii too. Please take a look at the attached type
Thanks … 🙂 Any info is good info!
