Very slender, highly ramified climber or hemi-epiphyte, the branchlets having the leaves interspersed with a greater number of cataphylls. Shoot system architecture unclear; eocaul and seedling not observed.

INFLORESCENCE solitary, terminal on ultimate leafy branches but subtended by one or more narrow cataphylls to 1.7 cm long; peduncle 1–2 cm long, very slender. Spathe c. 3 cm × 4 mm, ovate, subulate. Spadix sessile, 1 cm × c. 3 mm, oblong. Flowers c. 1.6 mm diam., with 6 free tepals and 6 stamens. INFRUCTESCENCE with 2–5 berries; fruit 1–1.2 cm × c. 5 mm, elongate-obovoid; seeds not observed.
