Very interesting. I would like to see more pics of the whole plant and labellum. This labellum does not match very well with the original drawing.


This is very interesting.
The plants described from India by King and Pantling was Diglyphosa macrophylla (King & Pantl.) King & Pantl. and it is treated under D. latifolia. However, they don’t match. But this image here matches with D. macrophylla.
Painting of King and Pantling is attached.
