It could be Oberonia brachyphylla Blatt. & McCann

Can you tell us the size of the plant? Please also share a pic of complete plant if possible. What is the elevation of Amboli? above 900m?
…, this is not brachyphylla as there are no front lobes in the labellum.
This is close to Oberonia pachyphylla but the front lobe in pachyphylla has smooth margin, this has denticulate.
If I have to guess, this plant is very close to Oberonia proudlockii which is reported from Karnataka and is endemic to western ghats.
You can try to take more closeups using a magnifying lens in front of your normal lens.
This is very interesting indeed.

plant is small tiny, not measured length though

unfortunately my camera was not working properly then so could not take good pictures
this year i will try to take better pictures & will show you
Amboli elevation is 650m

I am thinking this could be a new species

This is very interesting … I have no idea what this is even after looking at the flower !!

This is one of the best things I have seen in the past one week.
This is Oberonia proudlockii. You don’t get to see this species on google.
