    Epiphytic or epipetric herb; stems less than 15 cm long, 1.5-2.5 cm diam.; roots moderately dense, spreading or descending, 2-3 mm diam.; cataphylls moderately thick, ca. 4 cm long, narrowly acuminate at apex (with short subapical apiculum), drying reddish brown, weathering into reticulate fibers. LEAVES erect; petioles 3-17 cm long, shallowly and bluntly sulcate, rounded abaxially; geniculum 1-2 cm long: blades coriaceous, oblong-oblanceolate to rarely narrowly elliptic, markedly arched along midrib, short-acuminate at apex, acute to attenuate at base, 25-38 cm long, 10-12.5 cm wide, broadest just above middle or rarely at middle; upper surface semiglossy, eglandular, lower surface matte, densely glandular-punctate; midrib broadly raised at base, narrowing at middle, diminishing and sunken at apex above, broadly raised below, flat at apex; primary lateral veins 6-10 per side, departing midrib at 40-60° angle, clearly visible on new leaves, less conspicuous on older blades, merely etched to weakly sunken above, flat to prominulous below, straight to collective vein; interprimary veins scarcely visible above and below; collective vein arising from the base, 7-10(-13) mm from margin, etched to weakly sunken above, prominulous below. INFLORESCENCE erect, equalling or longer than leaves; peduncle 10-42 cm long, 5-7 mm diam., terete, tinged red-violet near base, usually 2-3 times longer than petioles; spathe subcoriaceous, green, lanceolate to oblong, 3.5-5 cm long, 1-3 cm wide, broadest below middle, obtuse to rounded and cuspidate at apex, acute at base, decurrent ca. 2.5 cm; spadix green, becoming pale lavender (B & K.
