Peristylus-parishii-2023-05-15 *SITF confirms this plant as Peristylus parishii (May 2023).

Confirmation based on the tri-lobed lip and horizontally held tubular-like petals; excellent match to the photo on the IOSPE, the photos in and to the illustration in Lucksom's 2007 " The Orchids of Sikkim and NE Himalaya". This plant matches the flower size and number of flowers per inflorescence for P. parishii.
