    General Description
    Epiphytic; stem short, 2-4 cm diam.; roots numerous, very dense, spreading, green to whitish, grayish brown on drying, moderately thick, 6-24 cm long, 3-5 mrn diam. when fresh, drying 1-2 mm diam.; cataphylls subcoriaceous, lanceolate, 2-3 cm long, acute at apex, green, drying brown (B & K yellow-red 4/10), persisting semi-intact. LEAVES spreading; petioles 4-9 cm long, 9-1 7 mm diam., obtusely D-shaped, broadly convex adaxially with the margins shortly and sharply raised, rounded to 3-5-ribbed abaxially, surface pale-speckled, reddish when young; geniculum thicker and slightly paler than petiole, 1 -1.5 cm long, prominently and transversely fissured with age; blades subcoriaceous, broadly oblanceolate, acute to acuminate at apex (the acumen apiculate), attenuate at base, 36-100 cm long, (12)20-60 cm wide, broadest above the middle, the margins broadly and shallowly undulate; both surfaces glossy to semiglossy, medium green above, slightly paler below, drying brown to greenish brown; midrib flat to obtusely raised at base, becoming acutely raised toward the apex and slightly paler than surface above, obtusely raised below and slightly paler than surface, pale short-lineate; primary lateral veins 12-16 per side, departing midrib at 40-55' angle, straight or weakly ascending to the margin, sunken above, prominently convex and slightly paler than surface below; tertiary veins obscure above, prominulous and slightly darker than surface below, drying raised on both surfaces; collective vein arising in upper third or fourth of the blade, sunken above, raised below, less prominent than primary lateral veins, raised above and below on drying, 4-20 mm from margin. INFLORESCENCES probably erect-spreading; peduncle 69- 105 cm long, 5- 15 mm diam. When dried, 6-9x as long as petioles, green, drying brown to pinkish brown, terete; spathe spreading, slightly recurled, subcoriaceous, green, tinged with purple near the apex, lanceolate, 7.5-9(35) cm long, l-1.3 cm wide, broadest near the base, acuminate at apex (the acumen inrolled), acute to almost decurrent at base; stipe 1.5-1.8 mm long in front; spadix purple to dark purple, long tapered, 14-23 cm long, 5-6 mm diam. near base, 3-4 mm diam. near apex; flowers ± rhombic, 3-3.3 mm long, 2.8-3 mm wide, the sides straight, 4-5 flowers visible in principal spiral, 7-8 in alternate spiral; tepals smooth, pale-punctate, lateral tepals 2.1-2.4 mm wide, the inner margins straight to broadly convex, the outer margins 2-sided; pistils green; stigma ellipsoid, 0.4-0.6 mm long; anthers 0.3-0.4 mm long, 0.4-0.5 mm wide; thecae oblong, not divaricate. INFRUCTESCENCE with the spathe persisting withered; spadix (1 2)18-41(100) cm long, 1.4-1.6 cm diam., bearing berries in the basal portion only; berries dark red, probably acute at apex, drying 4.8-5.5 mm long, 3-3.2 mm diam.
