Hi,
 
Let me introduce myself. I am a nature photographer from West Bengal ( India). During my visit to Sikkim and Singalila Forest(mainly through Darjeeling District of West Bengal) I had photographed some different Cobra Lilies (Arisaema) which I failed to identify.
Now, I am sending the photographs for your valuable comments.  
 
Photographs : IA & 1B: Phtographed in Singalila Forest(near Gairibas). Altitude: About 9000 ft. Blooming time April. Very common. Is it Arisaema nepenthoides? Please confirm.
 
Photographs : 2A, 2B & 2C : Photographed in Singalila Forest (near Gurdum). Altitude : About 7500 ft. Blooming time - April.  Are they belong to the same species? I am confused whether they are A.speciosum or A.costatum.  Please help me.
 
Photographs : 3A & 3B : Photographed in Singalila Forest (near Gairibas). Could not found in full blooming condition. Altitude : 9,000 ft. Blooming Time - April. Are they Arisaema griffithii ? Kindly confirm.
 
Photographs : 4A & 4B : Photogrphed in Tinchule Village in Darjeeling District of West Bengal. Common. Altitude :  About 6,500 ft. Blooming Time - April.
I could not identify it. Would you kindly help me to identify them.
 
Photographs : 5A, 5B, 5C & 5D : Photographed near Khechiperi Lake of Sikkim. Blomming time - April.  Are they Arisaema ciliatum? Kindly help me.
 
Thanking you,
 
Debasish Joardar.

As per concise flowers of the Himalaya by Oleg Polunin & Adam
Stainton- they have not mentioned Arisaema ciliatum, but these appear
like Arisaema erubescens as per plates & description. Can't 4A & 4B be
Arisaema erubescens also, as the leaves appears quite similar, though
the colour of Spathe is bit different? 1 to 3 appears to be what you
have stated as per this book.
Others may like to give their views.

Hi Debasish Joardar,

I recentlty joined and saw this old thread. I can give some ID's which
could help for future reference if you still need them:
1A & B = Arisaema nepenthoides
2 A, B & C = Arisaema speciosum, Arisaema costatum has a narrower red-
purple striped spathe with a thin appendage and unmarked leaf and
flower stalks
3 A & B = Arisaema griffithii, this is the lowland form originally
described as Arisaema hookeri/hookerianum
4 A & B = Arisaema concinnum
5 A-D = Arisaema concinnum

Arisaema concinnum occurs in green forms and purple forms and anything
in between.

Regards,

Pascal Bruggeman
