Anoectochilus sikkimensis King & Pantling

TERRESTRIAL ORCHIDS by NARESH SWAMI

ISBN 978-93-5258-377-5

Anoectochilus sikkimensis King & Pantling – this species for reasons unclear and unwanted was reduced to Anoectochilus brevilabris Lindl. However, field observations show that the latter is a species with varying characteristics. The stunning close-up photography presented in the book, TERRESTRIAL ORCHIDS, helps in understanding the characteristics of the species in great detail and dimension.
