Identification of Arisaema – regarding. : Attachments (13).  3 posts by 3 authors.
Let me introduce myself. I am a nature photographer from West Bengal ( India). During my visit to Sikkim and Singalila Forest (mainly through Darjeeling District of West Bengal) I had photographed some different Cobra Lilies (Arisaema) which I failed to identify.
Now, I am sending the photographs for your valuable comments.
Photographs : IA & 1B: Phtographed in Singalila Forest(near Gairibas). Altitude: About 9000 ft. Blooming time April. Very common. Is it Arisaema nepenthoides? Please confirm.

………………….. 1 to 3 appears to be what you have stated as per this book.
