    General Description
    Epiphytic or terrestrial; stems elongate, ca. 1m long, 1-1.5 cm diam., drying irregularly grooved on 1 or more sides; internodes 1.5-2.5 cm long; leaf scars moderately inconspicuous, ca. 1 cm wide; roots few, scattered at the nodes; cataphylls moderately thin, 6-15 cm long, green, sometimes tinged purplish, apiculate at apex, drying greenish-yellow to brown, dilacerating and often persisting, ultimately deciduous. LEAVES spreading, scattered in upper part of stem; petioles (8)14-48 cm long, 3-6 mm diam., terete; geniculum 5-15 mm long; blades oblong-lanceolate to lanceolate or oblong-elliptic, moderately thin, gradually acuminate to cuspidate-acuminate at apex (the acumen 1-3 cm long), obtuse to rounded (rarely acute) at base, 18-50 cm long, 4-1 2.5 cm wide, broadest usually below the middle, the margin ± straight; upper surface matte to semiglossy, lower surface matte; midrib weakly raised in a valley above, prominently raised below; primary lateral veins 10-16 per side, departing midrib at 60°-80° angle, weakly sunken above, raised below, loop-connecting to collective vein; lesser veins obscure; collective vein usually arising from the first to third primary lateral vein, 1-8 mm from margin. INFLORESCENCE spreading, usually shorter than leaves; peduncle 14-40 cm long, 3-5 mm diam., terete, three quarters to equally as long as petioles; spathe ± thin, green, lanceolate, 3-7 cm long, 7-14 mm wide, acuminate at apex, slightly clasping and rounded at base; spreading, inserted at 60° angle on peduncle; stipe 2-8 mm long in front, 1-7 mm long in back, ca. 3 mm diam.; spadix green, sometimes tinged with violet-purple, 4-12 cm long, 4-6 mm diam. at base, 2-4 mm diam. at apex: flowers rhombic, 1.8-4 mm long, 1.5-3 mm wide, the sides straight to slightly jaggedly sigmoid; 2-4 flowers visible in either spiral; tepals matte to semiglossy, densely and minutely papillate, turned up against the emerging pistils, lateral tepals 1.8-5 mm wide, inner margin convex, thin, pale, the alternate pair with inner margins convex; pistils early emergent, green; stigma ca. 0.5 mm long, elliptic; stamens held at or above the tepals on translucent filaments 0.5 mm long, 0.3 mm wide, lateral stamens developing throughout, followed quickly by alternates; anthers orange, 0.5-0.8 mm long, ca. 1 mm wide; thecae ellipsoid, slightly divaricate; pollen orange fading to yellow. INFRUCTESCENCE with spadix 7-14 cm long; berries oblong-ellipsoid, rounded at apex, bright red, 9-13 mm long, 5-7 mm diam., prominently exserted before maturity, mesocarp gelatinous; seeds 2, oblong-ellipsoid to elliptic, rounded at both ends, tan, scarcely flattened, 3-7 mm long, 3-4 mm wide, 2.5-3.4 mm thick, an appendage enveloping the seed, extending beyond both ends and at least one side.
