Kindly identify this Orchid, found on an unknown shrub. The specimen was leafless and bulbless with pencil- like stem.  

Habit: Epiphytic herb 

Habitat: Semi-evergreen forest 

Sighting: Kottigehara, Chikmagalur, Karnataka, about 1200 msl 

Date: 17-12-2015


Looking at the pencil-like stem I mistook it for Luisia tristis. Only after seeing the flowers did I realize that it was different.
