SK 3616 18 August 2022: 2 very high res. images.

Location: Juphal, Dolpa,  Nepal
Altitude:  2700m.
Date: 22 June 1022
Habit : Wild
Habenaria…??? Only these images.

I think this is an Epipactis. Cant confirm the species without open flowers.



Could it be Epipactis royleana Lindl. according to the attached image from a book ?

Not possible to confirm.
Epipactic royleana, E. gigantea, E. helleborine and E. veratrifolia are there in Nepal. Both veratrifolia and royleana can have red to greenish-red buds.
You can wait for few days, will open soon.
