This plant should be Platanthera clavigera (=Habenaria clavigera).
Location: Kharidhunga, Sindhupalchok, Nepal
Date: 6 September 2017
Elevation : 8700 ft.
Surprisingly the plant was almost above 120 cm.
Very interesting. Yes this is Platanthera clavigera and now known as Herminium clavigerum. Name comes from the distinct shape of the spur.
Thank you … for the new name.
By the way what is the maximum height of the plant as it
was around 160 cm above.

At Vitte, Sherpaland at about 2700m
Flowering october but at its end (full flowering in september)
Plant growing in the grassy talud of a path
Flowers green; upper ones fresh
I think this is Habenaria clavigera. Where was it taken? Where is Sherpaland?
