Found in Espiritu Santo, Rio de Janiero, Minas Gerais, Sao Paulo and Parana states of Brazil in cooler montane forests at elevations of 400 to 1000 meters as a small sized, warm to cool growing epiphytic species with oblong-cylindrical, clustered, slightly compressed, green speudobulbs carrying 2 apical, erect or spreading, subcoriaceous, narrowly oblong-lanceolate, acute leaves that blooms in the spring with a, to 2' [60 cm] long, arcuate to pendant, alternately branched panicle that is densly many flowered. Warm to cool conditions, moderate light, plenty of water while growing and a slightly drier winter rest and mounting on tree fern will ensure a happy plant.
