Its leaf is slightly fleshy, short-petiolate, triangular-ovate, rounded base, brown with green reticulate veins and the apex blunt. The inflorescences of this species are terminal resulting from the formation of the new pseudobulb with measuring at about 8 – 9 cm long. The flowers of this species are resupinated and both its sepals and petals are linear, the apex acute, reflexed and pale green with purple veins. This species can be found in Northern India, Bhutan, Myanmar, Indochina, Peninsular Malysia, Borneo, Sumatra and Philippines.
