Found in Napo Ecuador in wet montane forests on twigs at elevations around 1800 meters as a mini-miniature sized, cool growing epiphyte with small ovate, flattened, rugose, caespitose pseudobulbs enveloped basally by distichous, imbricating foliaceous sheaths and carrying dorsoventrally flattened, narrowly ovate, acute, apiculate leaves held in a fan that blooms in the late spring and earlysummer on a from the apical leaf sheath, to 1.2" [3 cm] long, 5 to 7 flowered inflorescence with 2 to 4 triangular bracts

CAUTION I am not sure of this determination, according to Dodson the leaves apices are not acute, the lip has a basal set of barbs and the column which is not visible here well is terete and clavate with a dorsal anther
