Flower Size

Found in New Guinea on trees in forests at elevations around 1300 meters as a small sized, cool growing epiphyte with a stem-like rhizome giving rise to close set, subparallel to the rhizome pseudobulbs carrying a single, apical, elliptic-ligulate, minutely apiculate leaf that blooms in the winter on a very short, fasciculate, provided with a few small bracts, single flowered inflorescence with very small, much shorter than the ovary floral bracts.
