Dear Sam ji,

Let me put here for sake of reference, our conversation regarding the coining of the Malayalam name for Peristylus lawii Wight

A joint word flower-arrow that literally translates to പൂവമ്പ് poovambu will be used as a generic name for Peristylus spp. and specifically for P. lawii, the prefix മഞ്ഞുള്ള manjulla = misty ... suggestive of the plant's moist habitat is coined.

Thus മഞ്ഞുള്ള പൂവമ്പ് manjulla poovambu, a coined name in Malayalam, for Peristylus lawii Wight

Many thanks Sam ji for your help in coining the name.
