Found in Sabah Borneo in oak laurel forests at elevations of 1700 to 1900 meters as a small to medium sized, cool growing terrestrial with an erect, terete stem carrying sublax, to 8, obliquely ovate-lanceolate, acute, petiolate base leaves wilting during blooming in the late winter and early spring on an erect, pubescent, 6.2" [15,5 cm] long overall, peduncle to 2.6" [6.5 cm] long, with 2 remote sheathing bracts, rachis 3.6" [9 cm] long, secundly to 23 flowered inflorescence with lanceolate, acute, twidce as long as the ovary floral bracts and carrying extrernally pubescent flowers with an unknown coloration.

"This species appears to be related to Zeuxine baliensis J.J. Sm. from Bali, Indonesia. It differs in having larger leaves, a more floriferous rachis longer than the peduncle, flowers with narrower petals, and smaller labellum epichile" Paul Ormerod - The Harvard Papers in Botany, Vol. 23, No. 2, 2018, pp. 269277 2018
