This should be Dendrobium jerdonianum Wight. Some one told me that D.
nutaniflorum is a distinct plant though Kew list it as synonym of
this. I will confirm tomorrow and let you know.

IT is identified with the help of Wild flowers of Kodagu by Dr. T.
Ananda Rao, brought out by Coorg Wildlife Society, Madkieri (1999). It
has colour photograph.

Even if it is nutaniflorum, the correct name is Dendrobium jerdonianum
according to Kew's checklist.
