    Apparently endemic to Panama.
    General Description
    Epiphyte; stems sometimes branching, to 30 cm long, ca. 2 cm diam.; leaf scars 1.6 cm wide; roots pale green, 3-5 mm diam., directed upward from upper part of stem; cataphylls 4-5 cm long, acute and apiculate at apex, drying brown, weathering into fine, persistent fibers. LEAVES erect-spreading; petioles sharply 3-sided, flattened to narrowly and deeply sulcate adaxially, sharply 1 -ribbed abaxially, the sides convex, 21 -28 cm long, 6-7 mm wide; geniculum 1.5-2 cm long, shaped like petiole; blades subcoriaceous, oblanceolate-elliptic to elliptic, abruptly acuminate at apex (the acumen flat), acute to weakly attenuate at base, 29-43 cm long, 11.5-16 cm wide, broadest at about middle; upper surface semiglossy, lower surface much paler, sparsely dark reddish brown, glandular-punctate; midrib convexly raised above, narrowing toward apex, sunken at apex, acutely raised below; primary lateral veins 8-12 per side, departing midrib at ca. 50° angle, more or less straight to collective vein, sunken above, raised below; lesser veins scarcely visible; collective vein arising from the base, 6-15 mm from the margin, prominently loop-connecting the primary lateral veins, sunken above, raised below. INFLORESCENCE spreading to pendent, equalling or longer than leaves; peduncle 40-47 cm long, 3-5 mm diam., 4-5-ribbcd, appearing twisted, 1.5 times longer than petioles; spathe pale green (B & K Yellow-green 6/7.5), linear-lanceolate, 5-15 cm long, 5-15 mm wide, broadest just above base, acuminate at apex, rounded at base, twisted, soon withering; spadix yellow-green (B & K Yellow-green 6/7.5), 10-25 cm long, 4-6 mm diam. near base, 3-4 mm diam. near apex; flowers rhombic, 3.5-4 mm in both directions, 3-4 flowers visible in the principal spiral, 4-5 visible in the alternate spiral, tepals semiglossy; lateral tepals 2-2.1 mm wide, the inner margins broadly rounded; pistils weakly emergent, green; stigmas whitish with droplet for ca. 10 days before stamens emerge; stamens emerging in a prompt, regular sequence beginning at base, the laterals followed rapidly by alternates, the full complement persisting briefly then retracting; anthers white, ca. 0.6 mm long, 0.8 mm wide; pollen white. INFRUCTESCENCE pendent, the spadix to 32 cm long; berries violet purple (B & K Purple 3/7.5), obovoid, weakly emarginate at apex, 6.8-7 mm long, 5-6.5 mm diam.; mesocarp juicy with few, white raphide cells; seeds 2 or 3, creamy white, weakly flattened, 2.5-3 mm long, 1.5-2 mm wide, 1.4-1.5 mm thick, narrowly rounded at base, oblique at apex with a short sticky appendage.
