Found in Sabah and Brunei Borneo in heath and hill forests at elevations of 400 to 900 meters as a medium to large sized, hot to warm growing epiphyte with clustered, erect, becoming pendulous, leafy stems carrying many, distichous, thin textured, coriaceous, dark green, narrowly oblong to oblong-elliptic, minutely unequally subacutely bilobed leaves that blooms in the winter on a single flowered inflorescence arising mostly on older leafless stems with usually 2 to 3 per stem.

"Similar to D daimandaui D hepaticum and D uniflorum but differs from all three in the distinctive, tall, fleshy, lamellate, rather "Y" shaped keel of the lip." J J Wood 2014
