Hello all,

 

Some flowers from Upper Dibang Valley, Arunachal Pradesh:-

 

1060232 : Golden-flowered Dendrobium, Dendrobium chrysanthum. I found it growing high up on a very tall tree. A common orchid in the Himalayas but I only saw it twice.

 

1060053 & 1060057 : tubular, light purple flowers.

 

1050856-1 & 1050857 : The petals of these purple flowers had a texture I cannot describe. Found along the road.

 

1050804-1 : These multi-petal white flowers found growing on a rocky wall.

 

1050794-1 : These pretty yellow flowers growing amidst thick, wet vegetation.

 

Request identity please?

 

Cheers,

Hi, Kiran ji.
1060053 & 1060057 : tubular, light purple flowers.- may be Crawfurdia speciosa from Gentianaceae, see the links: http://www.dungevalley.co.uk/Olangchungola/06.%20Crawfurdia%20speciosa.jpg (a picture), http://flickr.com/photos/25530142@N08/2447754379/ (a picture), http://www.kew.org/mng/gallery/249.shtml (a painting), http://www.efloras.org/florataxon.aspx?flora_id=2&taxon_id=200017872 (detailed description)

Hi, Kiran ji,
1050804-1 : These multi-petal white flowers found growing on a rocky wall.- appears to be some Aster species from Compositae.

I think close to images at Crawfurdia angustata C.B.Clarke rather than those of Crawfurdia speciosa Wallich
