Dear Friends

This one is similar to my earlier posting Smithia hirsuta, but flower size is smaller and red patches have also become linear patch.
Must be another Smithia ? Id please.

Yes, the red marking can be a clue to the species but as per key the leaflets are more than 2 pairs (3 pairs) and calyx lobes are with linear segments on margins. This is the rare Smithia agharkarii, an endangered plant found near Kumudini lake on Kas Plateau. Here is another image. Regards,
