Hi friends,
i had been to Amboli in the 1st week of Aug 2010. Amboli is near sawantwadi in Sahyadri hills, Western ghats in Maharashtra, also known as 'Cherapunji' of Maharashra.

Attached pics of Eria dalzelli orchid.
Kindly confirm the id.

Cheers,
Shubhada

Nice pics thanks for sharing...

This is Eria dalzelii, but now called as:

Conchidium filiforme (Wight) Rauschert, Feddes Repert. 94: 444 (1983).

Syn:
Dendrobium filiforme Wight, Icon. Pl. Ind. Orient. 5: t. 1642 (1851).
Eria filiformis (Wight) Rchb.f. in W.G.Walpers, Ann. Bot. Syst. 6: 268 (1861).
Dendrobium dalzellii Hook., Hooker's J. Bot. Kew Gard. Misc. 4: 292 (1852).
Dendrobium fimbriatum Dalzell, Hooker's J. Bot. Kew Gard. Misc. 4: 292
(1852), nom. illeg.
Eria dalzellii Lindl., J. Proc. Linn. Soc., Bot. 3: 47 (1859).
Pinalia microchilos Kuntze, Revis. Gen. Pl. 2: 679 (1891).

Many people dont agree with tranfer of this to Conchidium so in that case

Eria filiformis (Wight) Rchb.f. in W.G.Walpers, Ann. Bot. Syst. 6: 268 (1861).

is the valid name for this.

Pankaj
