Perhaps the most peculiar species of Monophyllaea is M. singularis from Borneo. In this species the flowers are arranged in numerous tiny groups along one side of the stalk (sometimes also along the midrib of the macrocotyledon). A close-up of the flowers shows that they are indeed gesneriad-flower-like, but very tiny indeed.
