By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Life Science Weekly -- Investigators publish new report on Life Science Research. According to news reporting from Kathmandu, Nepal, by NewsRx journalists, research stated, "Liparis langtangensis B. B. Raskoti & Ale (Orchidaceae, Malaxideae) is a new species described and illustrated from Nepal."

The news correspondents obtained a quote from the research, "It is similar to L. campylostalix Rchb. f., sharing a cuneate corolla lip without a basal callus. Liparis langtangensis is distinguished by its oblanceolate leaf blades, the basal twisting of the ovary and pedicel, spreading or divericate lateral sepals, and a longer (to 5 mm) column, with two fleshy basal pads."

According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "Notes on the diagnostic characters used to distinguish it from allied species are provided."
