What I meant is this is 100% Habenaria edgeworthi.
Some people call it Platanthera edgeworthii, others call it Herminium edgeworthii.
I have seen the plant many times, and each time I saw a Habenaria there with a pair of typical projecting finger like stigma, but a bit short!

I am happy with Platanthera but not with Herminium. But whatever you guys feel can keep. I don’t mind.
