    General Description
    Epiphyte; stem short, 1 cm diam.; internodes short; roots relatively few, slender; cataphylls promptly weathering to fine, tan, persistent fibers. LEAVES more or less erect; petioles terete or obtusely or narrowly sulcate, 3-13 cm long, usually two-thirds to three-fourths as long as the blades, rarely one-fourth longer than blade; blades subcoriaceous, narrowly lanceolate, rarely narrowly oblong-elliptic, gradually acuminate at apex, obtuse to narrowly rounded at base, rarely acute, (6.5-)8-16.5 cm long, (1.5-)2.8-5.3 cm wide, usually broadest in the lower one-third, rarely at the middle; both surfaces semiglossy, conspicuously glandular-punctate; the midrib prominently raised on both surfaces; primary lateral veins 5-7 per side, departing midrib at 35-45° angle (drying etched into surface above, prominulous below); straight or weakly curved distally to the collective vein; interprimary veins present, slightly less prominent than the primary lateral veins; collective veins arising from the base, the primary collective vein etched above, prominulous below, 1-5 mm from the margin, a secondary collective vein sometimes developed in lower one-fourth of blade. INFLORESCENCE usually much longer than the leaves; peduncles 22-35 cm long, terete; spathe green, sometimes tinged with red, lanceolate, acuminate at apex, 2.5 cm or more long, inserted at ca. 45° angle, soon deciduous, weakly decurrent; spadix sessile, green to reddish or brownish, slender, scarcely tapered toward apex, 6-13 cm long, 2-3 mm diam. (dried); flowers rhombic, 3-3.5 mm long, 2-2.5 mm wide, 2-3 flowers visible in the principal spiral, 4-5 flowers visible in alternate spiral; the lateral tepals 1.5-1.7 mm wide, the inner margin broadly rounded, the alternate tepals with the inner margins concave; stamens retracted beneath the tepals after anthesis. INFRUCTESCENCE with berries more or less globose, bright orange, 5-6 mm diam., mesocarp with pale, more or less ellipsoid raphide cells; seeds 4, ellipsoid, 1.7-2 mm long, 1.7-1.9 mm diam., 0.6-1 mm thick, pale brown, rounded at base, weakly sunken at apex, without any sign of appendages.
