I was anxious to see this plant flowering for last 15 years. Thanks to Kishor Gumaste who forwarded this picture for ID recently. This is indeed Palasvel photographed in Kanha NP in Feb 2011. Next season I can see the flowers myself. Besides being a raceme at each node of the slender long stem, the inflorescence lacks the olive brown velvety surface. The petals, esp. keel seem longer than in B. monosperma. One of the calyx lobe seems to have a spur like cauda. Pls validate the differences and point out more. Regards,
