Description. Tubers large (to 30x20 cm.), chambered and reminiscent of the amazing terrestrial species H. caminiferum in having chimneyed entrances, yet this species is epiphytic. Branches to 1m. long, flowers sessile in leaf nodes, with an iridescent quality, corolla rich in raphides, perianth in fours, fleshy and fragile. Corolla throats white-hairy, 5 mm across, with yellowish anthers.

 

Habitat/Range. Mid-montane primary forest on ridge of granites and volcanic sediments. On stunted, 10 m. (33 ft.) leaning Nothofagus (Southern Beech) trees, rooting on the underside of branches in moss. Trail from Andjai to Gunung (Mt.) Nettoti near Base Camp 2, at 1740 m. (5709 ft.) Kebar Valley, Manokwari District, West Papua Province, West New Guinea Island.

Infauna. Unknown but no ants recorded.
