Kindly assist in the Identification of tiny orchid Taeniophyllum sp . from Sikkim Himalaya. The flower is shorter than T. retrospicatum and lip differs

Please check Taeniophyllum retrospiculatum (King & Pantl.) King & Pantl. !

This looks like Taeniophyllum glandulosum to me.

May be new to Sikkim ??
