Habenaria marginata (Pivali Habe-amri)
Terrestrial herb(Ground Orchid) from Orchidaceae family
This small herb 20 cm high was spotted on Vetal Tekdi on 1 oct 2008.
I tried to check for another similar plants in the surrounding area but only one small specimen was seen in spite of combing a large area in the vicinity.......must be rare on Vetal Tekdi(Pune). Earlier I had spotted one on hills near Khed Shivapur off Pune Satara Road in similar season.
