Found in Bolivia at elevations around 1700 meters as a small sized, cool growing epiphyte with a short rhizome giving rise to erect, gradually swelling towards the apex stem carrying to 3, elliptic-ovate, rounded, basally clasping leaves that blooms in the summer on a terminal, erect, to 5" [12.5 cm] long, several flowered inflorescence.
