Found in Reunion as a mini-miniature sized, cold growing epiphyte with a short stem carrying 2 ranked, oblong, unequally bilobed apically, leaves that blooms in the mid summer on an erect, simple 2 to 3 flowered inflorescence.

CAUTION I have no way of personally verifying this determination so please use with caution!!! The photographed plant ahs a branched many flowered inflorescence, according to the only reference that I have [Angraecoid Orchids Stewart, Hermans and Campbell 2006] for this species it should be a simple, 2 to 3 flowered inflorescence. I have no drawing or other method of identifying this species so PLEASE USE WITH CAUTION!
