Previously I had uploaded two sets of images of terrestrial/epiphytic orchids that were identified as Liparis wightana and Liparis barbata. I believe the present specimen is a different one. Kindly help in its identification.

I would say this is Liparis wightiana…. There are lot of Liparis in south and many of them are tricky to identify as they were not seen so often. Thanks for sharing…

Very beautiful species indeed, marvellous captures..


This is another genus which is very tough…. It looks so much surely like Liparis wightiana but colour is so different. But obviously it has to be wightiana.

Most of the Liparis posted by you recently, I think are Liparis wightiana.

I am not very convinced with the link you provided.

I think this is Liparis wightiana. We have seen a lot of the pics recently on eflora!

Cant be biloba.


Thanks for the clarification … I will take it.

efi page on Liparis nervosa & no page on  Liparis biloba as yet 


This is not Liparis nervosa for sure.

Lobes in Liparis biloba has very deeply lobed. I imagine if that is artifact or real.
… can you take a look.

No I think this is also Liparis wightiana.
