    Epiphyte; stems short; leaf scars hidden by cataphylls; roots few, slender; cataphylls ca. 3 cm long, drying reddish brown, splitting into slender fragments with a few slender fibers exposed. LEAVES with petioles 12-25(-36) cm long, 2-3 mm diam., subterete, flattened to weakly sulcate; geniculum ca. 1 cm long; blades moderately thick, oblong-lanceolate, gradually acuminate at apex (the acumen flat), acute at base, 16-26 cm long, 3.5-5(-6.7) cm wide, broadest in lower third of blade; upper surface semiglossy, eglandular or inconspicuously and sparsely glandular-punctate; lower surface slightly paler, dark glandular-punctate; midrib raised above, diminished and flat at apex, raised below; primary lateral veins 6-8(-10) per side, departing midrib at 50-60° angle, slightly curved to the collective vein, weakly sunken above, weakly raised below, weakly loop-connected; interprimary veins drying more or less as prominent as the primary lateral veins on both surfaces; collective vein arising from the base, 2-4 mm from the margin, weakly sunken above, weakly raised below. INFLORESCENCE usually erect, shorter than leaves; peduncle 13-31 cm long, 1-2 mm diam., equalling or to 2 times longer than petioles; spathe thin, greenish white, oblong-lanceolate, 2.2-4.5 cm long, 5 mm wide, broadest somewhat above the base, acuminate at apex, inserted at 60° angle on peduncle; spadix green, 2.5-3 cm long, 2.5-3 mm diam. near base, slightly tapered to apex; flowers square to 4-lobed, 4.5-5 mm in both directions, the sides jaggedly sigmoid, 3-4 flowers visible in the principal spiral, 5-6 flowers visible in the alternate spiral; tepals semiglossy, drying with conspicuous granular raphide cells; lateral tepals 1.8-2 mm wide, the inner margin broadly rounded; pistils not emergent; stigmas prominently raised, elliptic, 0.5 mm long, 0.3 mm wide; stamens apparently retracting after anthesis. INFRUCTESCENCE erect, spadix reddish, ca. 6 cm long, ca. 1 cm diam.; berries subglobose, white to pinkish white, rounded at apex, 3-4 mm long; seeds 2, broadly ellipsoid, brown, 2.1-2.7 mm long, 1.5-1.8 mm wide, 1.1-1.2 mm thick.
