Hi Prashant ji,
Nice photographs as usual.
Few from me, taken at Kaas plateau, Satara, Maharashtra in Sept 2009.
Cheers,

I imagine why they call it toothbrush orchid. They offcourse dont use
it as tooth brush, but may be just because it gives and impression of
structure like toothbrush.....but thats a bad name for a beautiful
orchid.
Anyways another important information is that this interesting orchid
is ENDEMIC to south India.

Pankaj
