    General Description
    Terrestrial in deep debris, creeping to erect; stems to ca. 80 cm long, 4-6 mm diam.; the internodes elongate, 1-4 cm long; leaf scars inconspicuous; roots relatively few, slender; cataphylls thin, drying pale reddish brown, promptly weathering but remaining more or less intact with fibers exposed, finally deciduous. LEAVES bicolored, long-petiolate, scattered on upper part of stem only; petioles subterete, sulcate. 14-17 cm long, ca. 3 mm diam., glandular-punctate on surface, much longer than the blades: blades thickly chartaceous (dry), broadly elliptic to almost orbicular, rounded or broadly obtuse at apex, ending abruptly with a short, downturned point, rounded to broadly obtuse at the base, ending abruptly on the petiole and briefly decurrent, 10-11.5 cm long, 7.5-8.5 cm wide; both surfaces semiglossy, the upper surface inconspicuously glandular-punctate (the glands not sunken), drying greenish brown; lower surface conspicuously and densely glandular-punctate, drying pale brown; midrib prominently raised on both surfaces; primary lateral veins 8-10 per side, departing the midrib at 65-90° angle (though often turning down along the midrib just before joining the midrib) on the same blade, the lowermost more broadly spreading than the upper veins, scarcely raised above, prominulous below: interprimary veins usually much weaker than the primary lateral veins; collective vein arising from near the base, extending to the apex, 3-6 mm from the margin, weakly sunken above, prominulous below, rather prominently loop-connecting the primary lateral veins. INFLORESCENCE much shorter than the leaves; peduncle 4-5 cm long, ca. 2 mm diam.; spathe green to white, moderately thin, oblong-lanceolate, 1.2-1.4 cm long, 3-4 mm wide, abruptly acuminate at apex, acute to rounded at base, inserted at ca. 45° angle on peduncle; stipe to 1.5 mm long; spadix short, pale green to white, scarcely tapered, 1.5-2 cm long, ca. 2.5 mm diam., flowers rhombic, 3.6-4 cm long, ca. 3 mm wide, ca. 2 flowers visible in the principal spiral, 3-4 flowers visible in the alternate spiral; tepals semiglossy, lateral tepals 2.5-2.6 mm wide, the inner margin almost straight; pistils not emergent; stamens 0.4 mm wide, retracted beneath the tepals after anthesis. INFRUCTESCENCE not known.
