  • In India, the term “Amarkand” is commonly used for around 30 different plant species belonging to genus Eulophia (Orchidaceae). This single local name Amarkand to different taxonomical species creates uncertainty about its ethnomedical and nutritional claims. ... Initially, E. nuda Lindl. was identified as Amarkand. It was later revealed that Eulophia ochreata Lindl. possesses higher medicinal and food value than E. nuda Lindl. [25,26]. Recently, it has been found that two newly described species of Eulophia have much better pharmacological activities than the earlier species. However, until today, no authentic information is available with respect to the exact species of Eulophia which could be considered as Amarkand.
