Thank you all for appreciation.
Yes orchid flowers show so much of variation of shape size and color.
But there are two things in common, labellum and gynostemium and with
these even a kid can say that its an orchid. But trust me to identify
the largest family in the world, it really is a tough job.
Even there are orchids, which doesnt show very distinct labellum like
in sub-family Apostasioideae. Then it becomes tricky.

Pankaj ji
It would have been better to send it in a new thread. It went under your earlier subject line of September 30
