    Distribution
    Endemic to western Panama in Bocas del Toro, Chiriquí and Coclé Provinces. However, it has more recently been recorded in Cochabamba department of Bolivia.
    General Description
    Plants usually epiphytic, rarely terrestrial; stems less than 5 cm long, less than 1 cm diam.; internodes short; leaf scars hidden by cataphylls; roots numerous, slender, spreading or directed downward; cataphylls 2.5-3 cm long, promptly weathering to slender, reddish brown fibers. LEAVES semi-erect; petioles 4-14 cm long, one-half to three-fourths as long as the blades, flattened adaxially with erect margins, rounded abaxially; geniculum to 1 cm long; blades thin, oblong-elliptic to lanceolate-elliptic, gradually sharp-acuminate at apex, narrowly acute to attenuate at base, (8-)11-18 cm long, 3-5.5 cm wide, broadest usually near the middle, drying thin, grayish green; both surfaces matte to semiglossy, glandular-punctate; midrib acutely raised above, weakly, convexly raised below; primary lateral veins 4-9 per side, departing midrib at ca. 45° angle, etched in surface above, prominulous below, directed straight to collective vein, weakly loop-connected, scarcely raised on both surfaces on drying; interprimary veins present, drying only slightly less conspicuous than the primary lateral veins. INFLORESCENCE usually about as long as the leaves, rarely slightly longer; peduncle 10-20 cm long, ca. 2 mm diam., equalling or to twice as long as petioles, terete to weakly 3-ribbed; spathe moderately thin, green, sometimes tinged with red, spreading, lanceolate, 2.5-5 cm long, 4-8 mm wide, broadest below the middle, acuminate at apex, inserted at 45° angle on peduncle; spadix sessile or nearly so, green, 5-9.5 cm long, to 2 mm diam. at base, ca. 1 mm diam. near apex; the flowers (dried) rhombic, 3-4.2 mm long, 1.8-3 mm wide, 2-3 flowers visible in principal spiral, 3-4 visible in alternate spiral; tepals semiglossy, coarsely granular-punctate, the lateral tepals 2.7-3.5 mm wide, the inner margin straight to weakly concave, the space between the tepals 2.5-3.5 mm long, elongated in the direction of the axis; pistil not emergent; stigma linear; stamens not exposed on dried specimens, presumably emerging briefly, then retracting beneath the tepals. INFRUCTESCENCE with pale green, subglobose berries, ca. 6 mm diam.
    Habitat
    Premontane rain and lower montane rain forest.
