Though Kew considers Habenaria gibsonii and foliosa as conspecific, I
think they are different. Even gibsonii has two varieties. They both
smell very differently. have long been confused with this. But to me
this plant looks very much like Habenaria gibsonii. I am in delhi
right now. Will try to dig more and find out the different between
two. I assume difference lies in the flower especially in the lobes of
lateral petals.
Please do try to smell it and let me know the fragrance.
Thanks for sharing.
Pankaj
