Thank you very much dear Mahadeswara ji for help with the names of Eulophia nuda Lindl.

We will go with:
ಹಾವಿನಮೋರೆ  ಗೆಡ್ಡೆ haavina more gedde ... haavina more = snake's face; gedde = tuber ... snake's face like tuber
ಹಾವಿನಮೂತಿ ಗೆಡ್ಡೆ Havina moothi gedde ... havina moothi = snakes snout; gedde = tuber ... snake's snout like tuber

We will drop the ambiguous ದಾವಣಿಯ ಗೆಡ್ಡೆ daavaniya gedde from our compilation.

Thank you very much once again.

Dear Dinesh ji,
This is with reference to the clarification required in respect of the  following Kannada names :
a)    Daavaniya gedde :  ದಾವಣಿಯ ಗೆಡ್ಡೆ  ( daavaniya = half sari's ; gedde = tuber) ;  Half-sari's tuber
b)    Haavina more gedde  :  ಹಾವಿನಮೋರೆ  ಗೆಡ್ಡೆ    ( haavina  more = snake's face ; gedde = tuber) snake's face like tuber
 c)   Havina moothi gedde  : ಹಾವಿನಮೂತಿ ಗೆಡ್ಡೆ  (havina moothi = snakes snout ; gedde = tuber ) snake's snout like tuber
In my view the names suggested at (b) & (c)  are quite good / appropriate  as they refer to the shape of the floral display.  In my opinion  you may include  these two names.  

I am not sure of the name at (a) .   I know only the one meaning of the word Daavaniya , which means half saree. I donot know how far it (plant)  resembles half-sari   I could not get any other meaning for this word.  Hence my doubt. 
Thanks & Regards,

But I am not sure whether they are valid or not. Please help me with them in Kannada script if you find them valid.
Please take your time; no hurry at all.
