Plant epiphytic, clump-forming on the substrate, 2.5–5 cm tall. Pseudobulbs flattened triangular to globose, 0.8–1.6 cm in diam., covered by a sheath which disintegrate into a fibrous reticulate network.

Inflorescence short, arising from base of pseudobulb, 1-flowered; peduncle very short; floral bracts conspicuous, ovate to rounded, 3–6.5 by 2–5 mm, apex acute, covering ovary. Flower 0.8–1 cm long, dull red, occasionally yellow; pedicel and ovary short.
