A new species Thrixspermum indicum is described and illustrated from Northeast India. It is allied to T. carnosum, T. muscaeflorum and T. trichoglottis but quite distinct from all these species in having broadly triangular lateral lobes of lip with acute incurved tips and absence of hairs on the inner surface, margins of mid-lobe and side lobes of lip. © 2017 Magnolia Press.

Other than the aesthetic values, orchids, the largest and most diverse group of flowering plants has a broad range of ethnobotanical applications. However, little work has been done on ethnobotanical studies of orchids used by the Khamti community of the North-East India. The present report is an account of the ethnobotanical uses of 4 medicinal orchids, viz., Cymbidiun aloifolium (Linn.) Sw., Cymbidium bicolor Lindl., Eria pannea Lindl., and Dendrobium fimbriatum Hook. among the Khamti community of the Lohit District of Arunachal Pradesh. © 2017, National Institute of Science Communication and Information Resources (NISCAIR).

Kaempferia marginata was described by Roscoe in 1828 based on a specimen sent by Carey from British India. However, its exact habitat remained unknown, until the present report. It has also not been collected for so long from any where within the territory of present day India. The present study enabled to locate its natural habitat at Keithelmanbi, Manipur, Northeast India. The species is described, illustrated and compared with K. galanga L., another species having close morphological resemblance.

Leaf anatomy was investigated in six epiphytic orchid species in five genera—Cleisostoma filiforme (Lindl.) Garay, Eria pannea Lindl., Oberonia oklongensis Chowlu et al., Papilionanthe teres (Roxb.) Schltr, Papilionanthe vandarum (Rchb. f.) Garay and Schoenorchis gemmata (Lindl.) J. J. Smith. The aim of the study was to determine if these species exhibited any visible special xeromorphic characters. Freehand transverse section and peeling techniques were used. Most species had a thick cuticle with a cuticular ledge and were amphistomatic. However, cuticular papillae were present only in O. oklongensis, P. vandarum and S. gemmata. Specialised water-storage cells were present within the mesophyll tissue in all the species except E. pannea. Both xylem and phloem found in S. gemmata consisted of fibrous caps. Raphide bundles were present abundantly in the mesophyll and epidermal cells of E. pannea and O. oklongensis. Sphaeraphides were present in the epidermal cells along with stomata of P. teres. Guard cells were cuticularized in almost all species except E. pannea. Wax-secreting cells were observed in E. pannea and O. oklongensis. Paracytic stomata were found in C. filiforme, E. pannea, P. teres, P. vandarum and S. gemmata. Only O. oklongensis possessed actinocytic stomata. © 2015, Kasetsart University. All rights reserved.

Dendrobium tamenglongense R. Kishor, Y. N. Devi, H. B. Sharma, J. Tongbram & S. P. Vij sp. nov. from Manipur, India is described and illustrated as a new species. The new species differs from D. jaintianum in having larger and glabrous leaves with acute apices, green sepal apices, a 1-3-flowered inflorescence, smaller and non-fragrant flowers and a 3-lobed labellum with fimbriate midlobe. © 2013 The Authors.
