    General Description
    Epiphyte; stems short, 1.5 cm diam., roots moderately thick, green, descending; cataphylls moderately thin, 5-7 cm long, acute and apiculate at apex (the apiculum 3-4 mm long, often curved), drying reddish brown, promptly weathering into fine, more or less loosely reticulate fibers. LEAVES erect or erect-spreading; petioles (3-)5-19 cm long, 4-8 mm diam., narrowly and obtusely sulcate, rounded abaxially; geniculum 1.5-2.5 cm long; blades subcoriaceous, oblong-elliptic, gradually acuminate at apex, acute at base, 26-44 cm long, 4-9 cm wide, usually broadest at the middle; upper surface matte, lower surface semiglossy, densely black glandular-punctate; midrib convexly raised above, sunken toward apex, prominently raised below; primary lateral veins 7-15 per side, departing the midrib at 30-45° angle, straight to collective vein, sunken above, raised below; interprimary veins scarcely visible; collective vein arising from the base, 5-7 mm from the margin, sunken above, raised below. INFLORESCENCE erect to spreading; peduncle 30-48 cm long, 4-6 mm diam., terete, 2-9 times longer than petiole; spathe green, thin, lanceolate, 3.5-8 cm long, 0.7-2 cm wide, broadest just above base, abruptly acuminate at apex, acute at base, inserted at 30° angle on peduncle, usually persisting; stipe 3-30 cm long, green sometimes faintly tinged red-violet; spadix lavender (B & K Purple 6/2.5), scarcely tapered toward apex, 7-13.4 cm long, 6.5-10 mm diam. near base, 4.5-6 mm diam. at apex; flowers rhombic to 4-lobed, 2.5-2.8 mm long, 2.4-2.7 mm wide, the sides usually jaggedly sigmoid, sometimes smoothly sigmoid (rarely straight), 5-8 flowers visible in the principal spiral, alternate spiral not obvious; lateral tepals 5-6-sided, 1.3-1.7 mm wide, the inner margin broadly rounded; pistils weakly emergent, pale green; stigmas linear-elliptic, 0.7 mm long, brush-like with droplets for several days before stamens emerge; stamens emerging promptly from the base, the laterals emerging well ahead of the alternates, pleasantly aromatic after stamens emerge; anthers lavender, held in a tight cluster around pistil, 0.3 mm long, 0.7 mm wide; thecae ovate, slightly divaricate; pollen white. INFRUCTESCENCE erect, to 2.5 cm diam. with berries exserted; berries red, narrowly ovoid to obovoid, acute at apex, 6-7 mm long, 3-4 mm diam., mesocarp somewhat mealy, translucent; seeds 2, creamy white, 2.5-2.7 mm long, 1.9-2 mm diam., 1.1-1.2 mm thick, enveloped in a gelatinous envelope with a short appendage at least on one end.
