Pravinji,
 
Beautiful catch!!!
 
I wonder... why such a beautiful plant 'Habenaria foliosa' called 'Ugra Habe-Amri' 'उग्र हबे-अमरी' in Marathi?

i imagine what " ugra" means in marathi. if it means bad or offensive,
then this very well matches to my Habenaria gibsoni var. foetida if it
had a bad smell.
