I believe the id is right..


Did you smell the flowers?


actually it was growing near H. gibsonii var. foetida.. when I smelt that I could not get enough courage to smell another one..!!


No no this one has a good smell. Foetida smell can even faint some weak-hearted people :))

Very good pictures again. Similar to H.plantaginea but still different.

Habenaria ¿ species ?
Dear friends, cannot recollect much about the dimensions.
… herb standing about 15 – 20 cm; flower about 15 – 20 mm across.
on Kas plateau, on 25 JUN 10

Hmmmm…. I would say this could be new species but very close to Habenaria panchaganiensis.
Interesting…. made me scratch my hairs !!!


Dear …, salutes! … you are very consistent with your diagnosis. These were almost the same words you responded three years ago when I showed you the above photos. Very nice to know it could be of new species. Putting another photo below – hoping it is the same plant — saw this one on Panchagani tableland a day earlier
on Panchagani tableland, on 24 JUN 10
… some species of Habenaria in full glory

Yes sir, the main issue is for me I will need proper flowers of both to dissect and study. From pics, they do look different from normal Habenaria panchaganiensis. The biggest question, HOW MUCH DIFFERENCE MAKES IT REALLY DIFFERENT.
If they are not occurring together with each other but isolated then surely they can at least be a new variety.
Unfortunately Indian laws doesnt allow you to send material outside otherwise it would take less than one week for me to check morphology as well as DNA.


OK, let us hope you will be in this part of Western Ghats during last week of some June in coming years
