    General Description
    Epiphyte; stems densely rooted, less than 15 cm long, ca. 1 cm diam.; internodes short; leaf scars obscure, hidden by cataphylls and roots; cataphylls 3-4 cm long, promptly weathering to slender, light reddish brown, persistent fibers. LEAVES erect; petioles sulcate, often drying sharply 3-sided, 2.5-5 cm long, 2-3 mm wide; geniculum 6-10 mm long, drying blacker than the rest of the petiole; blades drying thickly chartaceous, oblong-elliptic, weakly acuminate at apex (the acumen thickly apiculate), acute to attenuate at base, 12-18 cm long, 4.5-6.3 cm wide, broadest usually at about the middle, both surfaces semiglossy, the upper surface densely whitish speckled, sparsely glandular-punctate, the lower surface paler, more conspicuously and densely glandular-punctate; midrib raised on both surfaces, often drying acute beneath; primary lateral veins 8-10 per side, departing midrib at 30-40° angle, moderately straight to the collective vein, relatively obscure above, prominulous below; interprimary veins usually much less distinct than the primary lateral veins; collective vein arising from the base, 2-5 mm from the margin. INFLORESCENCE erect; peduncles terete, 3.5-4.5 cm long, spathe green to yellow-while, thin, lanceolate, broadest at about the lower one-third, abruptly acuminate at apex, acute at base, the margins meeting irregularly, one often markedly lower than the other, inserted at 45° angle on peduncle; spadix green to light yellow, tapered toward apex, 5-6 mm diam. at base, 2.5-3 mm diam. near the apex; flowers rhombic, 2.5-3 mm long; 4-5 flowers visible in the principal spiral, 6-8 in alternate spiral; lateral tepals 0.9-1.7 mm wide, the inner margin more or less straight, the alternate tepals with the inner margin straight to concave; pistils not emergent; stigmas linear, ca. 0.5 mm long; stamens emerging just above the edge of the tepals, retracting completely after an-thesis; anthers 0.3 mm long, 0.7 mm wide, the thecae ellipsoid, divaricate, opening broadly.
