    General Description

    Epiphyte ± pendent at 2-4 m; stem short; internodes short, 1.7-2.5 cm long, 1.5 cm diam.; cataphylls (7-)14-18 cm long, persisting as closely parallel fine fibres but ultimately forming a pale yellow-brown network of fibres, these flaring, ± straight not tightly appressed. Leaves ± pendent, petiole 21-35.7 cm long, 4-5 mm diam., medium green, weakly to semiglossy, terete, faintly and variably sulcate, drying brown to yellowish green brown; geniculum 1.5-3.9 cm long, 3-6 mm diam., drying dark brown to black-brown; blade oblong to weakly oblong-oblanceolate, 20.5-56 cm long, 3.3-9.3 cm wide (averaging 41.6 x 5.6), 5.3-5.7 longer than broad, 1.5 2.6 longer than petiole, acuminate to narrowly long acuminate at apex, narrowly acute to weakly attenuate at base, subcoriaceous, semiglossy, moderately bicolorous, dark green matte-subvelvety above, moderately paler and semiglossy below, drying olive-green to greyish olive green above, light greyish-olive-green to dark brownish olive below; upper surface eglandular but densely dark speckled above with the veins obtusely raised, glandular-punctate, irregularly granular-speckled and sparsely pale-pustular below; midrib narrowly rounded at base, bluntly acute toward apex above, slightly paler above, narrowly rounded and slightly paler below, drying finely and irregularly ridged and darker above and below, some times paler below, drying concolorous above and below; primary lateral veins 7-13 pairs, departing midrib at a 40-45° angle, etched, concolorous and quilted-sunken above, weakly raised and concolorous below, about as prominent as the collective veins; collective veins arising from base or from one of the lowermost primary lateral veins, 3-5 mm from margin. Inflorescence erect to pen dent; peduncle pale green, 14.6-23 cm long, 3 mm diam.; spathe 4.2-10.5 cm long, 2-6.4 mm wide, medium green, reflexed, sometimes becoming shrivelled and drying 1-2 mm wide; spadix sessile and rarely stipitate to 5 mm, cylindroid, dark purple-violet, 4.5-14.7 cm long, 3-4 mm diam. when dry, weakly glossy with pistils weakly protruding. Flowers 5-6 visible per spiral, 1.3-1.5 mm long, 1-1.3 mm wide, lateral tepals 0.8 mm wide, the outer margin obtusely 2-sided, the inner margin rounded; stamens held just above tepals, 7-8 mm wide and long, the thecae ovoid, weakly divaricate. Berry colour, seed number and spathe persistence all unknown.
