The sepals and petals are oblong acute, connivent. The spur of the lip is elavate and depressed, with an abrupt broad top. The side laciniae are rounded and toothletted, the middle lacinia almost terete with an apiculus. It was introduced from Borneo, and has just flowered with Mr. W. Bull. It is near Saccolabium densiflorum Lindl., and its allies, H, G. Rchb.f.
