I had seen it 1st time only on the COVERpage of the book "Flowers of Sahyadris" by Shrikant Ingalhallikar.
Since then I was keen to click it in the wild but unable to do so for may be 2-3 years.
In November 2008 during my trek thru Tirangi-ghat ( climbing down from Doni village
on the Ghats down to Rampur village in the Konkan ) among the thick KARVI,
suddenly I saw this one ..infact the only ONE flower on that plant !
