    General Description
    Epiphyte; stems thick, less than 10 cm long. 3.5 cm diam.; internodes short; leaf scars ca. 1.5 cm wide; roots green, smooth, descending- cataphylls thin, 8-12.5 cm long, acute at apex (apiculum subapical); drying dark brown to reddish brown (B & K Yellow 4/2.5), remaining intact, subpersistent. LEAVES with petioles erect-spreading, (4-)10-29 cm long, terete; geniculum 0.5-2.5 cm long, scarcely thicker and paler than petiole; blades narrowly ovate to ovate-triangular, moderately thick, long-acuminate at apex (the acumen minutely inrolled) shallowly to deeply lobed at base, 11-38 cm long, 5-23 cm wide, broadest at point of petiole attachment: anterior lobe 10.5-30 cm long, the margins straight to broadly convex; posterior lobes 2.5-8 cm from apex of sinus to outermost point; sinus parabolic to hippocrepiform, acute to rounded at apex; upper surface semiglossy, with sparse, conspicuous raphide cells, lower surface more or less glossy, with inconspicuous, round, gland-like punctae; midrib convexly raised to middle above, diminishing and sunken toward apex, convexly raised below; basal veins 3-5 pairs, first and second free to base, those remaining briefly coalesced, weakly sunken to flat above, flat to prominulous below; posterior ribs absent, the outer margin flat to weakly turned up; primary lateral veins 6-15 per side, departing midrib at 45-55° angle, weakly sunken to flat above, flat to weakly raised below, more or less straight to collective vein, interprimary veins few, scarcely visible, flat; lesser veins visible on drying: collective vein arising from the first basal vein or one of the primary lateral veins 4-7 mm from the margin, loop-connecting the primary lateral veins, weakly sunken above, prominulous below. INFLORESCENCE spreading, nodding, as long as or longer than leaves; peduncle terete, 17-52 cm long, up to 5 times longer than petioles; spathe subcoriaceous, pale green (B & K. Green 7/10), lanceolate to broadly lanceolate, held cupped over nodding spadix, 5.5-14 cm long, 2.5-3.5 cm wide, broadest at base to near middle, long-acuminate at apex (the acumen inrolled its entire length), rounded to truncate at base, inserted at 60° angle on peduncle; spadix creamy white, weakly tapered at both ends, 3-9 cm long, 7-9 mm diam. midway; flowers 4-lobed, 1.8-2 mm long, 2.2-2.4 mm wide, the sides jaggedly sigmoid, 7-8 flowers visible in the principal spiral, (10-) 12-14 flowers visible in the alternate spiral; tepals matte, minutely and densely papillate, lateral tepals 0.8-1.1 mm wide, the margins convex; pistils scarcely emergent, white; stigmas scarcely visible, elliptic; stamens emerging from the base, usually progressing to the third or fourth spiral before spathe fully opens, lateral stamens emerging first, quickly followed by alternates; anthers white, 5-6 mm long, 6-8 mm wide, held over pistil; thecae elliptic, not at all divaricate; pollen white. INFRUCTESCENCE pendent; berries red-orange, paler at base, 6-7 mm long, 4-5 mm diam., mesocarp gelatinous; seeds 2, 3-3.2 mm long, 2.1-2.5 mm diam., 1.2-1.3 mm thick, enveloped in a sticky gelatinous envelope.
