It is characterized by the combination of solitary or 2-flowered inflorescence with indistinct peduncle, relatively large, white, bell-shaped flowers in comparison with the small size of the plant, and having globose tubers. This species is epiphytic on wet and densely mossy tree trunks at c. 2 500 m altitude on Mt Victoria.
