Check with Capullipedium 

I was wondering since Glyceria acutiflora subsp. japonica is not listed in Nepal.
Capillipedium sp. is listed in Nepal but I could not make out which one among the
two sp. Capillipedium parviflorum (R.Br.) Stapf and Capillipedium assimile (Steud.) A.Camus. ??

Must need to go through keys …

Glyceria tonglensis C. B. Clarke is listed in checklist of Nepal.
May be close as per FOC illustration compared to Glyceria acutiflora Torrey subsp. japonica (Steudel) T. Koyama & Kawano
However, only … can confirm.

Enclosing link for Capillipedium which are listed in Nepal.

FOC illustration on the right side is Glyceria acutiflora ssp. japonica. It should be a new report for Nepal.

Enclosing some images shot today!
