Thank you very much Pankaj and Sweedle for correcting the ID.

Clarification regarding citation -- is it Habenaria ovalifolia Wight ?
It is put as synonym of Habenaria furcifera Lindl. at The Plants List.

Regards.
Dinesh

Any published reference to show that Habenaria furcifera Lindl. is different from  Habenaria ovalifolia Wight ?
I have been generally following  The Plant List unless some later publications indicates otherwise.
