Arare variety of orchid has been discovered in the Mandal Area of Uttarakhand’s Chamoli district by the state forest department.

Cephalanthera erecta var. oblanceolate has been found at an elevation of 1,870 meters in Chamoli district, Chief Conservator of Forest (Research) Sanjiv Chaturvedi said. It is a new record for the flora in India, he said.
”Though discovered in May itself, the Botanical Survey of India confirmed the discovery on Saturday,” he said.

The specimen of the species found in Uttarakhand has been reported for the first time from anywhere in India, the official said. These terrestrial orchids were found growing on humus-rich soil during a floristic exploration in Mandal, Chaturvedi said.
