Characterized by the sympodial, caespitose habit, cane-like stems with numerous leaves, apical inflorescence subtended by 1-2 large spathes, and a nutant, heavy racemose to paniculate inflorescence with numerous large, fleshy, attractive flowers. The new species is recognized by the large sub-orbicular lip in outline, the margins revolute, with the mid-lobe short, wide and deeply emarginate, thus bi-lobed, formed by two semicircular small lobes strongly revolute, not evident in natural position; sepals 12-16 mm long, petals are oblanceolate, sub-acute, 2.2-3.0 mm wide.
