Gori Valley Tour: Aeschynanthus sikkimensis for validation..: This epiphyte/parasite was found in the forests around Chokori during our recent tour to Gori valley... would like to share for validation.. id was provided by ... along with interesting information on its pollination...
what a nice "parasite"
nice pics
what's unique story about the pollination, can you share it?
This is actually not a parasite.
By the way ... you again missed the Orchid there, Dendrobium monticola may be...

Location : Hmunpui, Mizoram

Habit : Epiphytic plant
Altitude : c.850 m.
Habitat : It grows wild on the tree
Genus : Aeschynanthus
overall it seems related to the goldfish plant/flowers but that's Columnea
of course is part of Gesneriaceae as is Aeschynanthus part of Gesneriaceae
not knowing the sizes etc of flowers and leaves and other details  i cant go further.
both these are epiphytes so that's not a differential feature.
Thanks for the upload, i got to see a nice flower
Aeschynanthus species in eFloraofindia (with details/ keys from published papers/ regional floras/ FRLHT/ FOI/ Biotik/ efloras/ books etc., where ever available on net) 
This looks similar to efi thread
Thank you sir

Already identified as Aeschynanthus parviflorus in
MSJuly,2015/04 for ID (Aeschynanthus sp.)
Thank you sir
I have struggled to remember what this was. leaves and color of flowers were very familiar. these leaves reminded me so much of the
goldfish plant I used to have (before the days of widespread internet and digital photos). I have since discovered that my goldfish plant is called
Nematanthus strigillosus
 Moore 1973 and it belongs to Gesneriaceae  ... where as this plant from NE INDIA. Aeschynanthus genus also belongs to Gesneriaceae family
==
BUT its very stange and interesting that Nematanthus genus grows exclusively in Brazil ie south american continent and Aeschynanthus genus in almost in India and south east of India i.e. Asian continent, a small specific region. I wonder how did the gene pool travel so far ??? Both genus plants are succulent and form trailing habits and good for hanging baskets.
nature is full of wonders. more i see more i know how much i dont know and how much remains to be looked into and how many things need genetic mapping

Aeschynanthus hookeri C.B. Clarke (accepted name)    ?????
Location: Pokhara , Nepal
Altitude:  2600 ft.
Date: 27 July l 2015
Altitude not matching.

Sepal look different from your earlier images of Aeschynanthus hookeri
I still think it is A. hookeri
I think look closer to images at Aeschynanthus parviflorus (D.Don) Spreng.
 
Dry opened up seed pods of Aeschynanthus parviflorus (D.Don) Spreng. 
I guess.

Kindly identify this orchid with red flowers photographed in Sikkim in May 2015. I apologise that i have only a single view which may not be enough evidence.
Pl. check with images of Aeschynanthus perrottetii 

Of course Aeschynanthus....
Looks right to me.
Not Aeschynanthus perrottetii A.DC. as sepals look different as well as no distribution (as found only in western Ghats).
Looks rather closer to Aeschynanthus parviflorus (D.Don) Spreng. although image is not clear.
