Flower Size

Found in New Guinea in range forests along creeks at elevations of 800 meters as a small sized, warm growing epiphyte with a cauliform, flexuous rhizome giving rise to superposed, cylindrical pseudobulbs carrying a single, apical, erect, linear-ligulte, acute, narrowing below into the petiolate base leaf that blooms in the later winter on a very short, single flowered inflorescence.

Schlechter states that the flowers are white with a violet-red lip.
