Found in the Philippines at low to medium elevations as a miniature sized, warm to cool growing epiphyte with a creeping rhizome giving rise to wrinkled, cylindrical pseudobulbs carrying a single, apical, elliptic-lanceolate, acute, leathery, grooved below leaf that blooms on a slender, 3.2 to 4.8" [8 to 12 cm] long, single flowered inflorescence with 2 tubular bracts.

CAUTION I have no way of personally verifying this determination so please use with caution. Does not even come close to Cootes 2009 I am pretty sure this one is wrong
